Berra, Tex to be honored at Munson dinner


Yogi Berra and Mark Teixeira will be among the honorees at the 32nd annual Thuman Munson Awards Dinner Tuesday night at the Grand Hyatt Hotel.

Berra will receive the Legends Award and Teixeira, along with Mets pitcher R.A. Dickey, local NBA great Chris Mullin and former NBA star Dikembe Mutombo will receive "Thurmans'' in honor of the late Yankees captain. The Mets' Daniel Murphy will be honored as well with the Rising Star award.

As always, Munson's widow, Diana Munson, will appear, having helped raise more than $11 million through the dinner for the AHRC New York City Foundation, which benefits children and adults with learning disabilities.
