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.
