Yogi Berra battling health issues
Yogi Berra has not appeared at Yankee Stadium for a postseason game yet this year. The 87-year-old greatest living Yankee has been battling health and mobility issues; baseball people were thrilled when he was able to attend the Hall of Fame ceremonies in Cooperstown in July after it was thought he would not be able to.
“He hopes to get to one of the games,” said Dave Kaplan, director of the Yogi Berra Museum and Learning Center in Montclair, N.J. “I’d expect it would be World Series if they get there.”
