Yogi’s 20th… Golf Outing

June 15, 2010 — As the case usually is, Nick Swisher said it best.

“Anything
that is related to Yogi Berra is nothing but a good cause,” the rightfielder said when I asked him about his support of the Yogi Berra Museum and Learning Center. “Yogi stands for so many wonderful things, and he’s been an inspiration to me. I
don’t think there anyone in this entire universe that doesn’t like Yogi Berra. He
asked me if I was going to be here, and I told him that I wouldn’t miss this
for the world. It’s an honor to be here to represent him.”

Swisher (who is pictured below with Yogi and Carmen Berra) was among 44 celebrity guests at Berra’s 20th annual golf outing, which was held at the Montclair Country Club in West Orange, NJ yesterday. The event raised $300,000, and the proceeds will benefit the museum’s signature programs, including summer camps and youth seminars.

“Yogi has
reached so many children,” said former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, who is pictured below with my wife TIana and I. “He gives children
an introduction to the game that is very positive. I can’t think of anyone
better at that than Yogi, because he has such a wonderful personality and aura.”

“I’m
grateful to everyone who came out to support us,” Berra said. “Joe Girardi,
the coaches and all the players help to make it successful.  It’s a
lot of work for everyone, but it really helps us keep doing what we’ve been
doing.”
