A former owner of Captains Cabin and baseball legend as passed away.

Manuel Joseph "Jim" Rivera (born July 22, 1921) is an American former Major League Baseball (MLB) outfielder. He played for three teams over ten seasons: St. Louis Browns (1952), Chicago White Sox (1952–1961) and Kansas City Athletics (1961).

Rivera was born to Puerto Rican migrants in New York City. He was first called "Jim" when he was 17, "Big Jim" when he started playing for the Chicago White Sox during the 1952 season, and then "Jungle Jim" in 1953 which was initiated by a Chicago Sun-Times sports writer. This was due largely to his unorthodox playing style, and for his highly extroverted personality.

Rivera lived in Steuben County for a period in his life and owned Captain' Cabin for roughly 20 years.

He was 96 years young when he passed away.
