As you know, Yogi Berra will miss the 64th annual Old-Timers’ Day celebration today. He fell in his home in Montclair, N.J. last night. The Yankees said Berra was OK but unable to attend today’s event.

Here’s a statement from the Berra family:

“Yogi fell down last night near our house (in Montclair), and suffered some bruises. He is now recovering at home. He is extremely disappointed he is unable to participate in today’s Old-Timers ceremonies and see so many of his friends. He appreciates the well-wishes and hopes to be up and about very soon.”
