NEW YORK (AP)
Yogi Berra will be among the honorees at the 32nd Thurman Munson awards dinner.
He'll be joined by Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira, Mets pitcher R.A. Dickey and former NBA and St. John's star Chris Mullin, who will receive awards for their athletic success and philanthropic work at the dinner on Jan. 31 in New York.
The 86-year-old Berra will receive the Munson Legend Award in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the 1962 World Champion New York Yankees.
The gala, which remembers the late Yankees catcher and captain, benefits AHRC-New York City Foundation.
Diana Munson, Thurman's widow, has helped raise nearly $10 million to assist children and adults who have intellectual and developmental disabilities.
