In addition to a spot in the Hall of Fame, 10 World Series championship rings and a museum in his honor, New York Yankees great Yogi Berra is going to get something else - a statue. The Yogi Berra Museum and Learning Center announced it would erect a bronze statue of the beloved baseball icon in front of the museum in Little Falls, N.J.

A rendition of the statue, which will cost about $125,000, was unveiled Monday. It shows Berra on one knee in the on-deck circle, holding two bats and gazing skyward.

Museum director Dave Kaplan says the rendition came from a 1950s Sports Illustrated photo.
