Now this qualifies as exciting news …
Hall of Famer Yogi Berra has agreed to take questions from readers from The LoHud Yankees Blog and The Journal News.
We’ve had some great people take part in this series — Derek Jeter, Mariano Rivera, Jason Giambi, Joba Chamberlain, Phil Hughes and Brian Cashman — but having Yogi on board is something I’ve been trying to arrange for a while and it’s finally going to happen.
Here is how it will work: You have until Monday at noon to e-mail your question to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please, one question per reader. I will then select the 10 best questions and present them to Yogi. The Q&A will be on the blog next week.
Yogi, as you know, is one of the cornerstone players in franchise history. He played with Joe DiMaggio and Mickey Mantle, won 10 World Series. three MVPs and was an All-Star an amazing 15 times. So come up with a good question for him and maybe it will be selected.
Remember, it has to be e-mailed to me by noon on Monday. No questions submitted after that will be considered.
