Bronx Street Outside of Yankee Stadium Renamed After Mariano Rivera

Kyle Newport@@KyleNewportFeatured ColumnistMay 5, 2014

Adding an extra letter to a sign was an easy way to pay tribute to a baseball legend.

River Avenue runs right past Yankee Stadium in the Bronx. Given that former New York Yankees pitcher Mariano Rivera is the greatest closer in baseball history, it made sense to just throw on an "a" to the street sign. 

Rivera racked up 652 saves over 19 seasons with the Yankees, so it's only fitting that the street right outside of the stadium was renamed in his honor.
