Tampa Bay Rays baseball team owner Stu Sternberg was still living in Rye back in 2008 when his team went to the World Series.
Sternberg was on the Inside Pitch podcast on Monday, where host Steve Carney ask him how he would spend 48 hours in Rye. Sternberg had two recommendations. First, "you have to go out to Playland," said the former Rye resident. He recounted how the movie Big was filmed at Playland and reported "the boardwalk is nice."
Sternberg's second recommendation, while of benefit to Rye residents, is actually in Harrison. "I'm a food guy" said Sternberg, before raving about the Fiamma Pork Store on Halstead Avenue. Specifically he called out the mozzarella, pancetta and sausages.
Sternberg, his wife Lisa and kids Sanford, Jake, Natalie, and Ella now call St. Petersberg, Florida home.
