Berra, Teixeira to be honored at Thurman Munson Awards Dinner

Yogi Berra and Mark Teixeira will be among the honorees tonight at the 32nd annual Thurman Munson Awards Dinner, to be held at the Grand Hyatt in Manhattan.

Berra will receive the Legend Award in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the 1962 World Series-winning Yankees. Teixeira will be joined by Mets pitcher R.A. Dickey plus NBA greats Chris Mullin and Dikembe Mutombo in being honored with “Thurmans,” presented for success on the fields of play and philanthropic works off the field. The Mets’ Daniel Murphy will also be lauded with the inaugural Thurman “Rising Star” award.

Diana Munson, Thurman’s widow, will attend her 32nd straight benefit, having been involved since its inception, raising nearly $11 million to assist children and adults who have intellectual and developmental disabilities.
