yogikids.jpgMontclair’s resident legend Yogi Berra appeared with fifth-grade students from Hillside and Northeast Schools on Tuesday to film a public-service announcement for the College Board on the importance of writing. The 30-second commercial was filmed at the Yogi Berra Museum & Learning Center and will air during Big East Conference basketball telecasts. Yogi, who has a way of words like few others, has authored a couple of New York Times bestsellers and his granddaughter Lindsay is a senior writer for ESPN magazine.

    Dear Kids, we all love Yogi, but please don’t try to emulate his prose style.
