She won a gold medal 3 weeks ago and had a walkway named in her honor at Sahlen's Stadium on Friday.
On Saturday, September 1, Abby and her teammates will be back on the field together to begin a 10 game victory tour against Costa Rica.
On Friday night, her adoring fans came out to visit her before the Rhinos playoff game.
Wambach spent an hour at the stadium on Friday night, signing autographs. It seemed as if she was at Sahlen's the entire day.
After unveiling "Wambach Way" in the morning she had her first practice with Team USA since they won gold in the Olympics.
A long day like the one on Friday, is why Rochester has a special place in Wambach's heart.
Wambach spoke to News10NBC, saying, "You know I couldn't be more honored to be from Rochester and for them to do this for me... it's really, you know, that's why I call Rochester the best city to raise a family in cause they always take care of their own."
She continues, "You know being here, letting the fans see what this is all about, seeing my family partake in this event. I honestly couldn't be more honored."
The U.S women's game against Costa Rica tomorrow can be seen on News10NBC at 2.30 p.m.
