August, 2018. While the New York Yankees celebrated the 20th Anniversary of their 1998 championship season, one of our top graduates, Hannell Hiraldo and his father were escorted through a private tour and meet-and-greet at the new Yankee Stadium by former Yankee star, Mickey Rivers. Hannell and his father, Hector, toured the Stadium with anecdotal highlights by former World Series player, Rivers. Especially interesting to Hannell’s father was their visit to Monument Park. After the tour and batting practice Rivers autographed Hannell’s baseball mitt and posed for photos.
The Hannells were then treated to an exciting Yankee game featuring a grand slam home run by Yankee first baseman Greg Bird.
Hannell was selected to participate in this event because of his high academic standing as a member of the NBCS Class of 2018 and his acceptance at Science Park High School in September.
Congratulations and good luck, Hannell!
