Berra Back at the Ballpark
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- Yogi Berra is back at the ballpark.

The 85 year old Hall of Famer was at George Steinbrenner Field on Friday for the Yankees spring training game against Atlanta, one day after he tripped and fell in the clubhouse while going to get a bowl of a soup.

Says Berra: "I didn't like the soup."

The Yankees spring training instructor caught one of his sneakers on the carpet and fell at Philadelphia's complex, where the Yankees played the Phillies on Thursday. Berra went by ambulance to the hospital as a precaution after landing on his backside and was released about four hours later.
