Ivan Nova, the Yankees’ best starting pitcher since the All-Star Break, dropped by the Fine Fare location on Clinton Street yesterday afternoon. His appearance transpired just one day after the baseball club held Mariano Rivera Day at Yankee Stadium to sign autographs and take pictures with some of his fans.

The event at Fine Fare was held in conjunction with Schweppes as part of an incentive program since the supermarket apparently purchased the most soda products in the Five Boroughs. That’s the word, anyway, according to account executive Freddy Arce. Fans and employees of Fine Fare lined up for signatures and photos with Nova.

There was also a simultaneous second promotion courtesy of Schweppes – raffling 10 pairs of tickets to Thursday night’s game (Tampa Bay Rays) to those who purchased 2 two liters of any Schweppes products. Said match is potentially the last home game of the 2013 season.

According Fine Fare management, they hope to have second-baseman Robinson Cano visit 175 Clinton Street within the next two months.

Stay tuned for further details. We got ya covered.
