Yogi ‘in good spirits’ after clubhouse tumble

Consensus Top 50 Prospects List
Yankees GM resigns

A little bit of scary news out of Clearwater this morning: Guest instructor and storied Hall of Famer Yogi Berra took a fall inside the Yankee clubhouse earlier today prior to the team’s game against the Phillies. According to reports, the former catcher “caught one of his sneakers on the carpe…and fell on his backside.” He did bang his head, and the Yankees say paramedics attending to him on the spot. “He is alert and in good spirits,” a team spokesman said.

For Yogi, this is the second such fall in recent months. He missed Old Timers Day in July after stumbling at his Montclair, New Jersey, home. Hopefully, he’ll have a speedy recovery this week. “He’s in good spirits, he’s smiling,” Yankee GM Brian Cashman said. “He didn’t want to go. We’re going to make sure it’s going to be fine.”

    Can we start tagging back-up catcher on all future yogi stories? Just for kicks?

    Can we all agree that we need to put Yogi in a giant bubble….he’s the only link to the old guard left; We NEED TO PROTECT HIM!!!

    Probably selfish of me, but just want Yogi to be well forever! As for the old guard, Whitey’s still kickin’, and there’a always Kubek, Richardson & Skowron. Pretty sure Ross Moschitto’s still around someplace (kidding! He’s still alive but I don’t think any of us would even notice if he sat next to us at the next ballgame we attended).

      I might be the only other one on this site who remembers Ross Moschitto…..but if you look at a profile of Yogi, he’s a spitting image of my old man, who’s 94 and still driving, and running to Atlantic City to spend his kid’s inheritance…..so “ah salute” to both of these guys….and to anyone who can remember Ross Moschitto….

      Kubek is still around but reportedly wants nothing to do w/the game, to the point that he allegedly hasn’t watched an MLB game since he retired almost 17 years ago.
