with a ceremony that included gifts  and  accolades,  demonstrating  the
high  esteem  in which he is held by both fans and peers, including many
New York Yankees fans who expressed their admiration and respect for his

  WHEREAS, His continued engagement in such  community-focused  events
reflects  his  dedication to New York as well as to his native Dominican
Republic, demonstrating his global impact and commitment to humanitarian
causes; and
