EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR'S WELCOME

On behalf of the New York Yankees organization, we are delighted to welcome student-athletes, alumni, and devoted fan bases of both Notre Dame and Rutgers to New York City. We are proud to host these fine institutions at Yankee Stadium for the fourth annual New Era Pinstripe Bowl.

When the current Yankee Stadium opened in 2009, we envisioned growing our fabric in American sporting culture beyond baseball, and returning football in the Bronx to the same level of prominence it achieved for decades in the House That Ruth Built. The manifestation of our vision is substantiated by this year's match-up between two of the most storied programs in college football, Notre Dame and Rutgers.

Notre Dame has enjoyed an all-time mark of 16-6-3 in games held at Yankee Stadium, including one famous for Coach Knute Rockne's "Win One for the Gipper" speech at halftime in a 12-6 win over Army in 1928. Rutgers, known as "The Birthplace of Intercollegiate Football," played in the first ever college football game on November 6, 1869, and more recently, claimed victory in the 2011 New Era Pinstripe Bowl. We look forward to the rich history of both Notre Dame and Rutgers intertwining at Yankee Stadium in what we expect will be one of the crown jewels of the 2013 college bowl season.

Beyond the game, participating teams and the traveling party will be immersed in the sights and sounds of New York City's magical holiday season. In addition, teams will spread holiday cheer to local youths, a reminder of the inspiration student-athletes emanate in the community.

Thank you for opening your arms to college football's newest grand tradition - the New Era Pinstripe Bowl.

Sincerely,

Mark Holtzman
Executive Director, New Era Pinstripe Bowl
