At the end of the 2013 MLB season, the greatest closer of all time, Mariano Rivera, will hang up his Yankee uniform and retire at the age of 43. The Yankees closer for the last 17 years is still excelling at an age most players, and pitchers specifically, are long gone from the game, and he was just named the 2013 MLB All-Star Game MVP. It’s unlikely there will ever be another like him. And yet, while the watching world believes his purpose on this earth is coming to an end, Rivera believes it is only beginning...

Kay Robertson looked out in the parking lot of the place she was working and saw her husband, Phil, slumped over in his car, his head on the steering wheel. Several months prior, Phil had said he didn’t want to be around his wife or his children. He told them this, then he left. Alcohol was his love, and his wife and children were a distant second...

As Willie Robertson sits at his desk, signing what appears to be posters or lithographs, his oldest brother, Al Robertson, stands behind the desk, casually placing a new poster or lithograph in front of Willie each time Willie finishes signing. It’s a perfect picture of who Al is, a behind-the-scenes (or behind-the-camera) guy who helps to keep things moving...

I know a basketball agent who went to the NBA All-Star game last year in Orlando. He was networking with some guys, hanging around after the game, and took a look around at his surroundings. He noticed a number of women hanging around after the game—a lot of women—and not just any women, women who wanted something. High heels. Short skirts. Tight shirts. Makeup-coated faces, like apples dipped in caramel...

It's the fifth inning at Royals Stadium. In the bullpen, Dan Quisenberry, the American League's premier relief pitcher, has been cracking jokes, planning pranks and maybe working a crossword puzzle. He's even wandered under the stands to consult with groundskeeper George Toma on the best way to strike out the crab grass in Quiz's front yard. Dan admits to not thinking about the game away from the ballpark, and not much about it at all during the first five innings either. But now he's getting restless... Click here to read our feature on Dan Quisenberry from our May/June 1985 issue. Quisenberry was one of the first athletes to grace the cover of Sports Spectrum magazine, which was originally called Sports Focus. Quisenberry passed away in September of 1998.
