Both Alex Rodriguez and CC Sabathia are hoping to play ball alongside Rivera Avenue.

Wednesday’s editions of The Post advocated changing River Avenue in The Bronx to Rivera Avenue as a tribute to the Yankees’ legendary and future Hall-of-Fame closer who is retiring after this season. The campaign was fully backed by some of Rivera’s most noteworthy teammates.

“That would be awesome. I think it should be done” Sabathia said. “It’s fitting.”

Added Rodriguez “Any idea honoring Mo I am 100 percent behind it. I love the guy.”

As Sabathia said the re-naming would indeed be fitting. Rivera ranks as the finest reliever in baseball history atop the all-time saves list with 652 after closing out the Yankees’ 4-3 win over the Blue Jays in Toronto on Wednesday night. The 13-time All-Star who will turn 44 in November has pitched 19 seasons in the major leagues earning five Top-five finishes in the Cy Young Award derby and leading the Yankees to five World Series championships.

Rivera himself weighed in on the renaming idea.

“That would be nice” he said. “It’s not my decision. I drive on that road every night.”

Support for the idea has come from people outside of the Yankees organization as well. Multiple local politicians endorsed the change while Twitter accounts @RiveraAveBronx and @161stRIVERAave are also pushing for the honor.

“It would be one of the greatest honors you could get” Rivera’s set-up man David Robertson said. “Get your own street named after you outside of Yankee Stadium. That’s a cool send-off for Mo.”

“At some point something’s going to happen for him … for all the stuff he’s done in his career” fellow reliever Joba Chamberlain said.

Many cities around the country have named streets for athletes. There’s John Elway Drive in Denver Michael Phelps Way in Towson Md. Larry Bird Blvd in French Lick Ind. and Pete Rose Way in Cincinnati just to name a few. There’s also Stan Musial Drive in Springfield Mo. an honor spearheaded by the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame which now resides on 3861 East Stan Musial Drive.

The Hall’s president and executive director Gerald Andrews said yesterday he met zero resistance to the idea. While the Cardinals have certainly employed other legendary players who merit the honor — Rogers Hornsby Bob Gibson etc. — Andrews said “We didn’t find any opposition to utilizing [Musial’s] name over someone else whatsoever.”
