City of New Rochelle Celebrates Yankees Legend Mariano Rivera with Pinstripe Parade on Sat. July 27

The City of New Rochelle will celebrate former resident & relief pitcher Mariano Rivera’s unanimous selection into this year’s baseball Hall of Fame with `Mariano Rivera Day’ on Saturday, July 27, featuring a pinstripe parade and culminating with a celebration at the Hudson Park Bandshell.

Nicknamed ‘Mo’ and ‘Sandman,’ Rivera is Major League Baseball’s greatest closer of all-time, recording 652 career saves including 42 post-season saves. In his 19-year celebrated career all with the New York Yankees, Rivera was a 13-time All-Star, World Series MVP (1999) and five-time World Series Champion. The Panamanian right-handed closer is the first player in MLB history to be elected into the Hall of Fame unanimously.

Residents, baseball fans and the general public are invited to line the streets of New Rochelle to cheer on and celebrate the local baseball legend and soon-to-be Hall of Famer.

WHEREThe one and a half mile parade route begins at City Hall on 515 North Avenue (southbound), continuing to Pelham Road and concludes at Hudson Park. The parade route is in close proximity to the New Rochelle Metro North Train Station, and City Hall is a less than ten minute walk from the station.

DETAILS: Rivera and special guests will participate in a photo op on the steps of New Rochelle City Hall for a special presentation of the Key to the City and Proclamation to officially proclaim July 27th as “Mariano Rivera Day” followed by a brief Q & A session (media only) before the Mariano Rivera Day Parade begins. 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.
