Best Baseball Museum New York 2001 - Yogi Berra Museum
Because of his postmodern use of the English language, Yogi Berra has become more of an icon to linguistsand humor columniststhan to baseball fans. But one gander at the 11 championship rings on display at the resolutely shtick-free YOGI BERRA MUSEUM will remind you that the Yogster also stakes claim to the best-catcher-of-all-time title. Besides displaying the mitt with which Berra caught Don Larsen's perfect game, recent exhibits have illuminated long-ignored topics like women in baseball and New York's Negro Leagues.
