1956 World Series Yogi Berra Game-Worn Uniform On Display
Yogi Berra's game-worn uniform from the 1956 World Series game where Don Larsen pitched a perfect game will be on display at the Yogi Berra Museum & Learning Center. The museum has been closed for renovations since last fall and the new addition to the museum will be highlighted in the re-opening on Sunday, June 12th.
The uniform is being loaned to the museum by Dr. Richard Angrist who purchased the historic item at auction for almost $600,000. He is also the primary lender to the Hall of Fame Museum at Yankee Stadium. The uniform will be on display along with other Berra memorabilia, including the glove worn during the same perfect game. Berra was present when Angrist brought the uniform to the museum on Wednesday.
The newly updated museum gives interesting insight into Berra's life and baseball career. Visitors can view significant Berra items as well as memorabilia from other players and teammates during his days in baseball. The museum opened in December, 1998 and the learning center is recognized as "the New York metropolitan area's premier sports education center." Admission to the museum is $6 for adults and $4 for students under 18.
