Yankees iconic closer Mariano Riviera will be honored today, in the Bronx, for his recent induction into the Major League Baseball Hall of Fame.

Legendary New York Yankees Closer and five-time World Series Champion Mariano Rivera will join celebrities, sports icons, former-teammates, family, and friends, to be honored for his unanimous, first-ballot induction into the Major League Baseball Hall of Fame on Saturday, November 16, 2019 at 6PM, at Marina del Rey, 1 Marina Drive, Bronx, NY.

All funds raised at the gala will go towards construction costs of a first-of-its-kind “Learning Center” to serve New York’s underserved communities, offering lifechanging educational services, after school programs, and youth sports to children in impoverished areas. The gala is anticipated to raise hundreds-of-thousands of dollars to benefit children in need.

Mariano Rivera is perhaps the most iconic baseball pitcher of the last fifty years. Completing his stalwart career in 2013, the career-New York Yankee played 18 seasons with the Bronx Bombers, securing countless accolades including a five World Series Championships, a World Series MVP Award, and during his final year had his jersey number “42” retired by Major League Baseball. Rivera was enshrined in the “Cathedral of Baseball,” in Cooperstown, NY, after being unanimously selected to the Hall of Fame in 2019.

Rivera formed the Mariano Rivera Foundation, whose mission is empowering impoverished youth with education for the future, which includes providing vital funding and assistance for underserved communities unable to afford services, after school activities, and sports. The organization is rooted on three core values: schooling, sports, and spirituality.

Guests who will be on hand include: Comedian Bobby Collins, Model and Actress Carol Ann Alt, Members of the Steinbrenner Family, Haley Swindal Actor, Producer, and Screenwriter Chazz Palminteri, Singer Sal “The Voice” Valentinetti, Sopranos Star Steve Schirripa, MLB Network Anchor and Radio Personality Ed Randall, Jimmy Vali Orchestra, New York Yankees Legend Bernie Williams, and others.
