Yankees, Mets Stars Pitch Summer Vacationing In NY

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Yankees star relief pitcher Mariano Rivera and Mets slugger David Wright bolster the lineup for the newest “I Love NY” advertising campaign to encourage summer tourism in New York.

They’re among the Yankees and Mets who are featured in short TV ads to run on the Yankees’ YES Network and the SportsNet NY station, which carries the Mets’ games.

The ads will include Yankees Manager Joe Girardi and relief pitcher David Robertson as well as Mets’ second baseman Daniel Murphy and pitcher Matt Harvey.

The ads seek to entice New Yorkers and out-of-state tourist to plan summer vacations that include Mets and Yankees games and the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown.

But the spots also promote New York’s vineyards, West Point, lakes and other tourist destinations.
