Yogi attends second game this year
By Mike Mazzeo
Yogi and Whitey Ford returned to Yankee Stadium for Old-Timers' Day.
NEW YORK -- It was deja vu all over again, as Yankees Hall of Famer Yogi Berra received yet another huge ovation from the crowd after his latest Old-Timers’ Day introduction on Sunday at Yankee Stadium.
Berra, now 88, came in on a golf cart along with Whitey Ford, 84, out of the center-field gate. He waved to the crowd but did not leave the cart. A video tribute was played in his honor.
Berra is currently using a cane, but Yogi Berra museum curator Dave Kaplan said he is doing OK.
This is the second game Berra has attended this season. He also attended a game in May in a suite.
