Wanting to leave more than just an unbeatable Major League record in career saves behind as he gets set to retire from professional baseball,  New York Yankees’ pitching legend Mariano Rivera has joined forces with LED (light emitting diode) company, Evolucia Inc. to create a one-of-a-kind LED baseball.

With a Major League career 652 saves — the most all time — Rivera is famous for his bat-breaking pitch called “the cutter.”  Now preparing to retire from baseball, Rivera says he wanted his commemorative baseball to send a message to fans throughout the U.S. and in Latin America: “we can cut energy consumption, reduce pollution and save money by switching to LED lights.”

Evolucia Inc. (http://www.evolucialighting.com) is an industry pioneer in the design, engineering, manufacture and marketing of high performance LED lighting systems to the global lighting markets. Evolucia received the United States Department of Energy‘s highest award for lighting within the LED category, and has installed thousands of its fixtures at military bases, universities, municipalities, and large commercial entities. Evolucia’s LED lighting products are sold under the brand, Evolucia www.evolucia.com.
