Yogi Berra back in Yankees camp following fall

Yogi Berra back in Yankees camp following fall
BY ANGELA DAIDONE
NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

Baseball Hall of Famer Yogi Berra was back at the Yankees spring training camp in Tampa, Fla., following a brief trip to a nearby hospital following a fall in the team’s clubhouse on Thursday. The 85-year old former catcher and manager was okay, after being treated and released a few hours after the incident.

Yankees’ general manager Brian Cashman originally told reporters that Berra caught his sneaker on a piece of carpet and lost his balance in the Yankees' clubhouse in the Phillies' complex in Clearwater, Fla. But the New York Post reported that Berra took a sip of hot soup, tossed his head back and lost his balance.

But when asked what happened, the ever-quotable Berra said Friday, “I didn’t like the soup,” the Post reported.
