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.

Great guy. When ever the Yanks were in Mpls. he would stop at the restaurant I worked at, he and the owner were good friends and it was like two little kids getting together.
Best wishes to Yogi!!

#5 John- How old are YOU anyway, 12? Jeez. Grow up, junior.

I'm happy that Yogi wasn't hurt; I LOVE this guy! He's always been one of my heroes, and it doesn't hurt that he's a HOOT.

Poor reporting here ... it's not called Bright House Field. It's George M. Steinnbrenner Field. Before that, it was called Legends Field.
