Yogi Berra



As part of my birthday celebration this year, I ventured to New Jersey to visit the Yogi Berra Museum on the campus of Montclair State University.  This quaint little museum is actually built right next to the school ballpark, also named in honor of the Hall of Fame Yankee catcher.  While the museum is heavily Yankee-based, it was worth a visit, and is a worthy place to stop if you are a baseball fan in the greater New York area.

Aside from the exhibits, they also have a small gift shop of Yogi items including a few signed baseball cards for $20 - a small price to pay to add a signature to my collection!

Yogi Berra is considered by many to be the greatest catcher of all time.  His accolades are numerous, and include being a part of 21 World Series as either a player or coach.
