Look for ESPN to continue its coverage and tributes to Yankee great Yogi Berra dedicated segments in its 5 p.m. Baseball Tonight show as well as during its Wednesday night game telecast, according to a source at the net.

Appropriately, ESPN's Wednesday night double header lineup leads off with the Yankees vs the Blue Jays, followed by the Diamondbacks and the Los Angeles Dodgers, formerly the Brooklyn Dodgers, whose rivalry with the Yankees, particularly in the Berra era, is one of the sport's most iconic.

Berra, famed both as a Yankee catcher (and briefly manager) and coiner of enduring and endearing malapropisms, died Tuesday (Sept.22) at the age of 90.

ESPN has been covering the story throughout the day on SportsCenter, First Take, ESPN Radio and online.
