Rivera Only Inductee To Win 100% Backing

Big Yankee, Plus Halladay, 2 More

Could Draw Biggest Crowd, Katz Says

Rivera Only Inductee

To Win 100% Backing

BY LIBBY CUDMORE

COOPERSTOWN  – Jeff Katz thinks that this will be a record-breaking year in Cooperstown.“With Mariano Rivera getting in, I think it’s very likely we’ll break the all-time attendance record,” he said.

Rivera, a career Yankees pitcher, was the first to be elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame unanimously by the 425 ballots cast by the Baseball Writers Association of America.

“A high-profile Yankee is always big, and he’s the first guy from that great team to get in. I think it will be a big tip-off from what we can expect for Derek Jeter in 2020,” Katz said.
