DETAILS

Yankees legend Yogi Berra was taken to the hospital for precautionary reasons Thursday before the Yankees were set to play the Phillies at Bright House Field in Clearwater, Fla.

Yogi Berra talks with infielder Robinson Cano Sunday in Kissimmee, Fla. General manager Brian Cashman and manager Joe Girardi played down the incident which, according to Cashman, resulted from a fall when Berra caught his sneaker on some carpet and fell.

According to Erik Boland of Newsday, Girardi said Berra was smiling and joking after the fall, during which Cashman said he didn't hit his head. The Associated Press reported he fell on his backside. Cashman said he didn't want to go to the hospital.

Berra, 85, serves as an instructor for the Yankees during spring training. The Hall of Fame catcher, who played for the Yankees for 18 seasons and has had two stints as their manager, has a record 10 World Series rings as a player.

Glad to hear it is not serious.

Yogi is a treasure, we cannot afford to lose people like this in these dark days.
