This is cool, but it’s also sad.
It’s cool because it’s Yogi Berra’s house and, if you want to, you can buy it for $888,000 which, yes, is a custom price designed to match Yogi’s retired number 8. It’s sad, however, because Berra decided to sell the house last year, presumably because it was getting to be too big or too much for he and his wife Carmen as they approached 90. Carmen died recently. Yogi doesn’t live there anymore. Leaving the place you call home happens to a lot of our grandparents and parents and eventually it will happen to us too.
But there are still 40 years worth of memories in that house and well over 50 years worth of memories for the Berras in Montclair, New Jersey. Here’s hoping whoever buys this house is worthy of the Berras and their wonderful legacy.
