Manager Joe Girardi Lays Flowers At Home Plate For Yogi Berra
“Always go to other people's funerals, otherwise they won't come to yours.”
The New York Yankees are having a good year, but yesterday they had to face the loss of one of their all-time greats with the passing of Hall of Fame catcher Yogi Berra. Before tonight's game against the White Sox, manager Joe Girardi (also a catcher), brought flowers in the shape of Berra's number 8 and placed them behind home plate, Yogi's natural spot on the field. Girardi was joined in the ceremony by three other Yankees catchers: Brian McCann, Austin Romine, and Gary Sanchez.
The Yankees then went on to win one for the Berra, 3-2, over the White Sox, helping them to inch closer to the playoffs. Thanks to the Yankees for a classy way to remember their catcher, and RIP, Yogi.
