BeRRA HOs­pI­TAL­IzeD

Austin American-Statesman - - SPORTSBRIEFING - — Com­piled from wire re­ports

Yogi Berra spent Satur­day night in the hos­pi­tal af­ter missing the New York Yan­kees’ Old-Timers’ Day, fol­low­ing a fall out­side his New Jersey home Fri­day.

Berra, 85, was taken to a Mont­clair, N.J., hos­pi­tal be­cause of bleed­ing re­lated to the fall. Berra, who takes a blood-thin­ning drug, had a pro­ce­dure to stem the bleed­ing from cuts on his nose. He was re­leased Sun­day.

Berra still ex­pects to at­tend next week­end’s Base­ball Hall of Fame cer­e­monies, said Dave Kaplan, di­rec­tor of the Yogi Berra Mu­seum & Learn­ing Cen­ter.
