Yogi Berra taken to hospital as precaution after fall in Yankees' clubhouse
New York Yankees Hall of Famer Yogi Berra was taken to a Clearwater, Fla., hospital today after falling in the team's clubhouse at Bright House Field.
Berra, 85, stumbled and fell backward after catching his shoe in the carpet as he went for a cup of soup. As a precaution, he was taken to Morton Plant Hospital in Clearwater, the Yankees said. He reportedly was alert and had spoke to his wife.
Yankees General Manager Brian Cashman told the Associated Press that, although Berra did not want to go to the hospital, he was "in good spirits."
"We're going to make sure it's going to be fine and is fine," Cashman told the AP.
