It's one final cheer for the closer of the last century as the City of New Rochelle celebrates former resident & relief pitcher Mariano Rivera's unanimous selection into this year's baseball Hall of Fame with `Mariano Rivera Day' in his adoptive hometown of New Rochelle on Saturday, July 27. With special thanks to the New York Yankees for their sponsorship and support, Mariano Rivera Day will feature a pinstripe parade beginning at 10 AM that culminates with a celebration at the Hudson Park Bandshell. Rivera will receive a special proclamation and the Key to the City before the one and a half mile parade route begins at City Hall on 515 North Avenue (southbound), continuing to Pelham Road and concluding at Hudson Park.
Residents, baseball fans and the general public are invited to line the streets of New Rochelle to celebrate the soon-to-be Hall of Famer. Following the parade, there will be a celebration with DJMG- Mike Guiliano, food, and special surprise give-a-ways, courtesy of the New York Yankees, at the Hudson Park Bandshell.
"Congratulations to Mariano Rivera for his election to the Hall of Fame. It is a well-deserved honor and tribute to his outstanding career. Not only is he a baseball Hall of Famer, but a 'Hall of Famer' in New Rochelle for his generosity and the service he continually provides to our community," said New Rochelle City Manager Charles B. Strome, III.
