TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie says Yogi Berra contributed a lot to the state he called home.

Christie said the longtime Montclair resident was a national treasure who provided “sterling examples of citizenship.”

The governor said Berra’s contributions included his military service and the Yogi Berra Museum in Little Falls, which offers children’s educational programs that focus on sportsmanship and social justice along with baseball exhibits and memorabilia.

The Hall of Fame catcher and New York Yankee great died Tuesday at age 90.
