Yogi Berra OK After Spring Training Fall

CLEARWATER, Fla. (AP) — St. Louis native and baseball Hall of Famer Yogi Berra has been taken in an ambulance from the Yankees spring training game against the Philadelphia Phillies to a hospital, following a fall.

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said the 85-year-old former catcher caught one of his sneakers on the carpet in the clubhouse Thursday and fell on his backside. Cashman said Berra did not fall on his head.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi, Cashman and executive Gene Michael were present as Berra left the Phillies’ spring training home, where the Yankees were to play Philadelphia. Cashman said Berra was “in good spirits” and “did not want to go” to the hospital.
