NEW YORK (AP) - Yogi Berra is missing Old-Timers Day at Yankee Stadium after taking a fall at home.

Yankees spokesman Jason Zillo says that the 85-year-old Hall of Famer has some bruises after the accident Friday in Montclair, N.J., but was OK.

Berra’s family said in a statement released Saturday by the Yankees that the former catcher is recovering at home and is “extremely disappointed he is unable to participate” in the ceremonies and “see so many of his friends.”

The statement added that Berra hoped to be up and about soon.

A day earlier the Yankees paid tribute to owner George Steinbrenner and public address announcer Bob Sheppard, who both died this week.
