The New York Yankees are headed to Panama City!
The Yankees just announced the team is going to play in “The Legend Series”, a two game series against the Miami Marlins from March 15-16 in Panama City, the hometown of future Hall of Famer Mariano Rivera.
There were rumblings about Rivera planning an exhibition game in his hometown earlier this offseason involving the Yankees and Rivera was able to make it a reality.
It is only fitting that one of our game’s greatest ambassadors, Mariano Rivera, could help us bring Major League Baseball back to his beloved Panama,” said Paul Archey, Senior Vice President, International Business Operations for Major League Baseball. “We look forward to partnering with the Marlins and the Yankees to deliver a groundbreaking sporting event to the fans of Panama, particularly the young fans who looked up to Mariano during his historic career.”
