San Francisco 49’ers quarterback Joe Montana, coaching icon Lou Holtz, former Yankees pitcher Don Larsen and ESPN sportscaster and NBA Hall-of-Famer Bill Walton were just some of the 20 athletes and coaches who attended The Perfect Show autograph session hosted by Steiner Sports on Saturday, June 18, 2016, at Adelphi University. 

Cari Costa ’16 was one of a number of alumni who volunteered to work with media at the event. “It was really cool to see these famous coaches and athletes at Adelphi,” she said, adding that she was impressed by the extensive news coverage.

Newsday was one of the many media outlets that covered the hundreds of people who gathered at Adelphi’s Center for Recreation and Sports to meet and hear interviews with legendary athletes and coaches—all of whom either played in or were part of perfect games or seasons.
