Looks like I might be seeing the Riveras roaming Quinnipiac’s campus next year. My school newspaper, the Chronicle, exclusively reported today Mariano Rivera III will come to Quinnipiac next year.
Mariano Rivera Jr., the son of New York Yankees famed closer Mariano Rivera, said in a phone interview Friday he will attend Quinnipiac University in the fall and will try out for the baseball team, attempting to walk on as a pitcher.
“My parents were supporting me 100 percent; they want me to go here,” Rivera said. “I have to prove to them that I’m ready for college and I’m on my own basically.”
