No. 8 Yankees patches to highlight tributes to Yogi Berra

No. 8 Yankees patches to highlight tributes to Yogi Berra
no-8-yankees-patches-to-highlight-tributes-to-yogi-berra
The New York Yankees will pay tribute to http://www.authenticmetsshop.com/authentic-41-tom-seaver-jersey.html Yogi Berra's life by wearing the No. 8 on their jersey sleeves the rest of the season, one of the many tributes that extended from President Obama to seemingly every person -- famous or not -- that Berra treated with respect. On Wednesday, the Yankees' lineup cards that are placed on each players' chair in the Rogers Centre road clubhouse had Berra's likeness as a player in the background. In New York, the Empire State building was lit up in Yankee blue and white pinstripes. Before the Yankees' game against Joe Mauer Womens Jersey the Blue Jays, there was a video tribute and a moment of silence for Berra. On Thursday, when the Yankees return for their first home game since Berra's death at age 90, there will be a special ceremony before the first pitch. During his pregame news conference, Yankees manager Joe Girardi echoed many others' thoughts by emphasizing what a pleasure it was to be around Berra. Girardi also said he thought there would never be a player again to win as many championships as Berra. Berra won 10 World Series rings as http://www.officialathleticsshop.com/authentic-34-rollie-fingers-jersey.html a player, the most in baseball history. In basketball, Bill Russell, as a player, and Phil Jackson, as a coach, have won 11 each. "I don't think you will ever see a player have the success that Yogi had," Girardi said. "The closest that we have seen in sports today is Michael Jordan, is the six in eight years, but it is not going to happen." Girardi said there was an ease to being around Berra that is often not present with former athletes of his stature. "I always thought I was talking to my Ryan Braun Womens Jersey grandfather," Girardi said. "I just felt comfortable. I almost felt like he was going to pull something out of his pocket, like a piece of licorice and all that sort of thing. It was always a joy to be around him." It didn't matter if you were the Yankee manager or just anybody. Berra treated people with respect.
