NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. -- To the delight of athletics recruits visiting campus for the day, New York Yankees legend Mariano Rivera made a surprise visit to the College of New Rochelle's Athletics open house last Saturday, Feb. 20.

In his remarks, Rivera highlighted his friendship with CNR and the close-knit community it offers. The Yankees star relief pitcher, a strong supporter of CNR and the College's athletic program expansion, then posed for pictures with recruits.
