TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Yogi Berra is back at the ballpark.

The 85-year-old Hall of Famer was at George Steinbrenner Field on Friday for the Yankees spring training game against Atlanta, one day after he tripped and fell in the clubhouse while going to get a bowl of a soup.

“I didn’t like the soup,” Berra said.

The Yankees spring training instructor caught one of his sneakers on the carpet and fell at Philadelphia’s complex, where the Yankees played the Phillies on Thursday. Berra went by ambulance to the hospital as a precaution after landing on his backside and was released about four hours later.

“He’s great,” Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. “He’s the same.”

Berra, who normally travels to away games with Girardi, didn’t accompany the manager for Friday’s road split-squad game against Toronto.

“He doesn’t have road pants, today,” Girardi said
