If you are indeed a Yankees fan, this man needs no introduction. Mo is coming to the Captial Region!

Mariano Rivera is a legend for the New York Yankees for many reasons. Even beyond the Yankees, he is one of the greatest baseball players to ever lace up cleats. The statistics speak for themselves. He is the all time leader in saves in MLB history. He would use his cutter to absolutely shut down all opposition. This and his astonishing ERA got him into Cooperstown with the first ever unanimous vote.

As I said above, Mariano Rivera truly does not need an introduction. Although I can imagine Metallica's "Enter Sandman" playing as I read the first paragraph.

What is he coming here for? Opening weekend at the Saratoga Race Course.

"We are thrilled to welcome Mariano Rivera to Saratoga Race Course for what is sure to be an exciting and memorable day for sports fans. Mariano is truly one of the most beloved and respected players of all time and his visit will only further enhance the festivities surrounding Opening Weekend," - NYRA CEO & President Dave O'Rourke/Saratogian

Stop out on Friday July, 12th and see Mariano Rivera!
