The greatest closer in baseball history will now get a New York street named after him.

According to the New York Post, the City Council’s vote was unanimous 47-0, in having River Ave, the avenue that’s right outside of Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, changed to Rivera Avenue in honor of Mariana Rivera.

The Yankee legend officially retired from baseball this past September and was giving a farewell to remember at Yankee Stadium.
