Mariano Rivera to write autobiography

Mariano Rivera is writing an autobiography. No word on whether he'll open with the final chapter.
    
Little, Brown and Co. said Monday it will publish "The Closer" next spring in English, Spanish and audio editions. A children's edition will follow that autumn.
    
The career saves leader, who turns 44 in November, says he is retiring this fall following his 19th season with the New York Yankees.
    
Says the 12-time All-Star: "Now is the time for me to finally tell my full story, of where I came from and what my game, my family, and my faith have meant to me every day."
