Yogi Berra Remembered At Museum Memorial Event

LITTLE FALLS, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) -- Several hundred fans of late New York Yankees Hall of Fame catcher Yogi Berra gathered Sunday in northern New Jersey to pay tribute to him.

The Yogi Berra Museum and Learning Center in Little Falls staged a memorial event. Among those attending were Berra's three sons and granddaughter, who shared stories about him and his life.

Berra was a longtime New Jersey resident. He died Sept. 22 at age 90.

As part of the memorial, baseball writers also shared stories about the Yankees great, fans were able to try on one of his World Series rings, and the The New Jersey Youth Chorus sang the National Anthem.

Berra's namesake museum offers children's educational programs that focus on sportsmanship and social justice along with baseball exhibits and memorabilia.
