Meeting Yogi Berra: 'I Really Didn't Say Everything I Said'

Double G Sports@DoubleGSportsCorrespondent IMay 28, 2010

Tonight, my wife and I took the trip up to Montclair State University to meet Yogi Berra at his book signing event. It was a fun event for both of us and something we enjoyed doing together.

The Yogi Berra Museum and Learning Center is located on the campus of Montclair State University in Montclair, New Jersey.

While not an large museum, it consists of many pictures and lots of memorabilia that every baseball fan should check out. While walking through the museum, you will see many great photographs of Yogi and other great former Yankees.

The newest addition to the museum is a Derek Jeter exhibit. In the large glass case honoring the current Yankees shortstop for his 2009 Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year award is Jeter's jersey, cleats and bat.

We got to view these great exhibits while waiting in line for our chance to meet Yogi and have our book signed.

Yogi was set up in a room designed like a baseball stadium. After Yogi Berra signed the cover of his book, "The Yogi Book," my wife and I got to take a picture with the Yankee great.
