As is reported at MLB.com, Mr. Rivera pitched a scoreless inning in the Blue Jays/Yankees game this evening. If he pitches a scoreless inning, he must still be with us.

So, this rumor is officially and thankfully dead. The overall concern shown for Mr. Rivera by a number of people who e-mailed me was wonderful.

Thank you for visiting MarianoRivera.com.

We have received a number of e-mails today from people saying that they heard that Mo was in a car accident. I can only say that we have heard absolutely nothing of this, thankfully. Likewise, a search at Google News comes up with nothing on this, which would indicate no media coverage of it. So, I have no idea where it is coming from. We can only treat it as a rumor and nothing more, at this time. If anyone knows of an online source of this rumor, please contact us.

Thank you.
