Yankee fans got a chance to meet some Bomber greats and test their baseball skills Saturday.

The sixth annual Yankees Radio Network FanFest was held at the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum.

Mariano Rivera joined a few former pinstriped players to greet fans.

The Yankee faithful grabbed autographs, pitched, hit and enjoyed live music.

"Actually gonna go see Doc Gooden now and just enjoying all the freebies that they're giving out here," said one attendee.

"We got John Flaherty's autograph and we've just been walking around getting free stuff," said a second.

"Just really enjoying their day, Yankee fest," said a third. "Have the opportunity to get a couple of autographs and see a number of ex-Yankee players. It's terrific."

There was also a health and wellness area offering free health screenings to visitors.
