MONTCLAIR, NJ – In honor of what would have been Yogi’s 93nd birthday, May 12, the Yogi Berra Museum & Learning Center is once again donating to area hospitals a selection of Yogi Berra Museum baby hats, along with free Museum memberships, for the families of all children born this week.
The outreach effort, now in its second year, is part of the Museum’s mission to keep Yogi’s remarkable legacy alive for a new generation of learners and leaders, both on and off the field.
“We started this initiative last spring and the response was so overwhelmingly positive that we’re at it again, with even more participating hospitals,” says Eve Schaenen, the Museum’s Executive Director. “The Museum has so much to offer, to young people especially. The values that made Yogi a national treasure – respect, sportsmanship, perseverance and excellence – are more important today than ever.”
