OTP - 2015 Novemeber 30: PRESIDENT GIVES MEDAL OF FREEDOM TO BASEBALL GREATS, ARTISTS, POLITICIANS

President Barack Obama recognized 17 Americans with the nation’s highest civilian award on Tuesday, including the first African-American woman elected to Congress, one of the greatest catchers in baseball history and a “Funny Girl”.

“We celebrate artists, public servants and two legends from America’s pastime”, Obama said, the latter comment referring to Berra and fellow baseball Hall of Fame member Willie Mays.
