Mariano Rivera was just immortalized in New York after having a street named after him. Rivera Avenue is now a part of NYC, and that's the way it should be. Rivera is a legendary figure and deserves to be one with the city that supported him throughout his MLB career.
But the famous closer isn't the only athlete to have a road named after him. Here are 10 more notable athlete streets:
There couldn't be a more appropriately named street in Texas than this. The Ryan Express spent 14 years playing baseball in the Lone Star State.
RG3's hometown didn't waste any time immortalizing the QB with a Blvd in his name.
Terre Haute is about two hours from Bird's hometown of French Lick, Indiana.
Gretzky is a national hero in Canada. There are many more things than just a street devoted to him.
When people think NASCAR history, they likely think Petty and Daytona. Perfect match.
The legendary Bears running back was born in Columbia, MS in 1954.
You can find Dale Sr. Blvd in North Carolina. You can find '3' bumper stickers just about anywhere.
The man that brought two Super Bowl titles to Baltimore definitely deserves his own street.
Here we have another hometown naming a street after its favorite son.
As for why Ruth has a street named after him in Texas? Not a clue.
