NYRA has announced Baseball Hall of Fame inductee and famous Yankees closer Mariano Rivera will be at the Saratoga Race Course tomorrow, July 12th! Here’s what you need to know.
The third race of the day will be named “The Mariano Rivera Hall of Fame” as a tribute to the retired New York Yankees pitcher. Post time for the race is approximately 2:10pm.
After the race, Rivera will address the crowd during a special ceremony to include a video tribute with highlights from his career, and a gift presentation from NYRA.
Rivera is Major League Baseball’s career saves leader, compiling 652 over 19 successful seasons with the Yankees. He’ll be making his way to Cooperstown next week to be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame as the first unanimous selection in history.
