For the sixth consecutive year, the Yogi Berra Museum & Learning Center hosted student athletes from member schools of the Super Essex Conference along with their families and coaches for a celebration of the qualities that made Yogi a national treasure. Recipients of the Investors Bank Best Teammate Award exemplify the strength of character, sportsmanship and supportive spirit that, though often unheralded, are vital to a team’s success.
“The recipients of the Best Teammate Award display the supportive, respectful dedication to team and sport that defined Yogi Berra as an athlete and a person,” said Eve Schaenen, the Museum’s Executive Director. “The Museum is all about sustaining Yogi’s legacy and the ideals he lived by his entire life, both on and off the field. We are proud to recognize young people who are living up to the high standards he set for us all. And we’re very grateful to Investors Bank for helping make the experience possible for these exceptional student athletes.”
