TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has signed an executive order honoring baseball great Yogi Berra.

The order calls for state government buildings to fly flags at half-staff on Tuesday in recognition of the life and in mourning of the Montclair resident.

The Yogi Berra Museum and Learning Center is located in Little Falls.

Christie says the World War II veteran, baseball player and coach was a national treasure.

Berra died on Tuesday. He was 90 years old.
