The New York Giants will hold a moment of silence for Yogi Berra prior to facing the Washington Redskins on Thursday
New York Yankees legend Yogi Berra passed away earlier this week at 90 years old. Major League Baseball honored the sports icon on Wednesday night with a moment of silence before five games, including of course the Yankees. As it turns out, the Yankees and New York Mets aren’t the only teams in the city that plan to pay their respects to Berra.
According to Ralph Vacchiano, the New York Giants will hold a moment of silence in honor of Berra prior to their game against the Washington Redskins on Thursday Night Football in MetLife Stadium:
Even in the NFL, the death of Berra hits home. That’s the kind of effect the man had on New York and around sports in general. It wouldn’t be surprising to see the New York Jets remember Berra in some manner this Sunday as well.
This outpouring of love for Berra isn’t just because of his accomplishments on the diamond; Berra was a beloved mentor and friend for many around baseball, New York, and basically everywhere that he went. With all the showings of respect after his passing, it’s clearer than ever how great and important of a man Yogi Berra was and how his impact is still felt.
