Report: Several World Series rings stolen from Yogi Berra museum
"Several" of Yogi Berra's World Series rings were stolen when thieves broke into Berra's museum Wednesday, the New York Post reports.
Reports of the robbery first surfaced Wednesday, but the extent of the losses were not immediately known. The Post reports the robbers also made off with two of Berra's MVP plaques and the glove he used in Don Larsen's perfect game during the 1956 World Series.
Berra, 89, played for the Yankees from 1946 to 1963. He won 13 World Series as a player, coach and manager, 12 with the Yankees and one with the Mets. He was named to the All-Star team in 15 consecutive seasons and inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1972.
The Yogi Berra Museum & Learning Center opened in 1998 on the campus of Montclair State University in New Jersey. Adjacent to the museum is a baseball stadium also named after Berra.
Local, state and federal authorities are currently investigating the theft.
