Rivera, Testaverde To Appear In Rockland Events This Weekend

It’s not the October appearance that Yankee fans are used to from Mariano Rivera, but it will be a chance to see the greatest relief pitcher in the history of the game on Saturday (10 – 11:30 a.m.) when he will help celebrate the 500th Dick’s Sporting Goods Store at the massive Palisades Center in West Nyack, N.Y.

On Sunday (10:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.), former Jets standout QB Vinny Testaverde will appear.

While Rafael Soriano has put together a season that in large part has made up for the loss of Rivera this year, Joel Sherman points out some numbers that accentuate just how untouchable the great Mariano has been in postseason play.  As close to unhittable as one can be, against the best teams each year.
