MONTCLAIR, N.J. (AP) -- It's not the house that Yogi Berra built. But it is the place in New Jersey that Berra, his wife and three sons called home for almost 40 years.

The six-bedroom, 3 -bathroom colonial in Montclair is for sale for $888,000. The baseball Hall of Famer wore No. 8 on his jersey when he played for the New York Yankees.

The 88-year-old and his wife moved into the house in 1974. Carmen Berra died in March at age 85. Their children have their own homes.

According to The Star-Ledger of Newark (http://bit.ly/1hWQpzn ), the home was built in 1902 and offers views of the New York City skyline. Its property taxes were $28,727 in 2013.
