The first episode in the third season of the Emmy-nominated "The Hook-Up with Brandon Steiner," will premiere on YES Network on Tuesday, July 19th at 11pm ET, following the New York Yankees postgame show. The episode will feature two New York Yankees icons, Mariano Rivera and Goose Gossage and is presented by Preferred Home Care of New York.
Brandon Steiner explores the remarkable humanitarian power of sports by helping out sports fans with extraordinary stories with the help of some of the most notable athletes he’s met throughout his career.
In this episode, Steiner partnered with Preferred Home Care of New York to return to the Hebrew Home at Riverdale by RiverSpring Health to give residents and their families a place to relax, socialize, and enjoy watching a game. With a bar, a pool table, arcade games, plenty of TVs, and of course Steiner Sports memorabilia, the viewing experience at “The Dugout” is top of the line. Guest host Goose Gossage was on hand to reveal the renovated space to the residents with the help of Yellow Tail Wines, Bronx Brewery and Original New York Seltzer.
Then, Steiner visits Hamilton Elementary School in Mt. Vernon, New York, where due to budget cuts, their library was cut in half--literally! A wall was put up to make more space for classrooms and offices. With the help of Mariano Rivera and Robison Oil with Co-President David Singer on-hand, Steiner was able to give the remaining space the facelift it deserves. Tri County Office Furniture stepped in to donate new furniture for the library and Monroe College also provided assistance and HP came with a special surprise.
Reading helped Mariano Rivera master the English language, and he knows how important it is to have a place in a school dedicated to doing just that. Watch the episode on YES Network to find out what Rivera surprised the school with to enhance the students' experience in the library!
