This 1902 Montclair, N.J., colonial has everything one could want in its 4,502 square feet of living space: six bedrooms, three-and-a-half bathrooms, three fireplaces, central air and the honor of having housed baseball Hall of Famer Yogi Berra for almost 40 years. And now it can be all yours for $888,000. And yes, the price reflects the Yankee catcher’s No. 8 uniform, NJ.com reports.
For potential buyers seeking even more baseball, the house offers a particularly fine location — it’s near the Yogi Berra Museum & Learning Center in Little Falls, N.J.
And if any baseball fanatic still needs more convincing, perhaps Berra himself can sell you on the location. The 88-year-old wrote an article for New Jersey Monthly in 2010 in which he stated:
“I always thought New Jersey was a good family kind of place. Our bowling alley even had a section for babysitting while people bowled. Carm [Carmen, Berra's wife, who died in March] said she picked Montclair because of the good schools and because there were so many kids playing outside — a nice place for our three boys to grow up.”
