According to Yankees General Manager Brian Cashman, Yogi -- who works as an "instructor" for the Yanks -- caught his foot on a carpet at Bright House Field in Florida. Though he didn't hit his head, Yogi was taken to a nearby hospital was for precautionary reasons.

In fact, Cashman claims Yogi was smiling and joking after the accident ... and didn't even want medical attention.

It ain't over 'til it's over.

I give him full respect, but an 85-year old man shouldn't be walking around at stadiums, he's bound to have an accident.
