Fan-led efforts to rename River Ave., a street outside Yankee Stadium, to Rivera Ave., in honor of Mariano Rivera, led to a City Council vote on Tuesday, considering the measure. According to the Post, the vote was 47-0 in favor with 2 abstentions.

As such, the one block stretch of the road near Yankee Stadium will officially be renamed to Rivera Ave.

"It's an honor to have a street named after me," Rivera told the Post. "I have a lot of great memories driving down that street. My family and I are extremely grateful for this."

Hello,

Thank you for visiting MarianoRivera.com.

With Hanukkah beginning last night, we are now entering the winter holidays. Soon enough, we'll be at the end of the year.

I just wanted to take this opportunity to wish you a happy holiday season and a happy, healthy and successful 2014.

Here at MarianoRivera.com, it was a bittersweet year. On one hand, Mariano Rivera's playing career has come to an end. On the other hand, he ended it in a wonderful, dignified, storybook way. It was an incredible season of mixed emotions for fans of Mo. But we can only be thankful that he was given the opportunity to come back, after his injury, and finish his career on his own terms.

I am thankful for everyone who has supported MarianoRivera.com. From David, who writes with me, to regular, loyal readers. Thank you for your kindness and support.

Happy Holidays!

Patrick

River Avenue is a street near Yankee Stadium in the Bronx. Fans have been leading an effort to get the city to add an A to the street name, making it Rivera Avenue, in honor of Mariano Rivera.

With six people vowing for a City Council speaker spot, all six candidates said that streets should only be renamed for people who are deceased. One candidate said that an exception should be made for Rivera, however. Queens Councilman Mark Weprin answered "yes - except for Mariano Rivera."

The City Council will vote on the issue next month.
