Yogi Berra not planning on attending Yankees' spring training because his travel is limited

  • Print

TAMPA, Fla. - The director the Yogi Berra Museum says the Hall of Fame catcher is not going to spring training with the New York Yankees because the 87-year-old's travel is limited.

David Kaplan said in an email Monday that Berra's heath was pretty good and that Berra plans on attending games at Yankee Stadium. Berra lives in New Jersey.

Berra's name was not listed among the guest instructors for Yankees camp. Several employees at George M. Steinbrenner Field said no locker was set aside for Berra's use.

A visible presence at spring training for many years, the popular 10-time World Series champion had more difficulty walking during camp last year.

Berra has taken several spills in the past few years. Two years ago, he fell at spring training and was taken to a hospital and released the same day. He also missed Old-Timers' Day at Yankee Stadium in 2010 after a fall.
