Yogi & Rachel

Yogi Berra turned 90 on May 12.  He doesn't get out or say much anymore but here he is with a visitor last week - Rachel Robinson, 92, Jackie Robinson's widow and quite a lady (see 42).  Yogi still thinks he tagged Jackie out stealing home in a famous and controversial play during the 1955 World Series between the Yankees and Dodgers.  The photo of Rachel and Yogi below was taken at the Yogi Berra Museum & Learning Center on the campus of Montclair State University in New Jersey; it's worth a visit if you have the time.

In 2010, THC and LDC had the pleasure of visiting the Yogi Museum to watch a World Series game with Yogi and his family.  A gracious man and a wonderful family.
