Around the Empire: Yankees news - 11/25/15

Rich Schultz/Getty Images | Jamal Collier: In a ceremony on Tuesday at the White House, President Barack Obama honored 17 people people with the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the country's most prestigious civilian honor. Among the 17 recipients were Baseball Hall of Famers Willie Mays and Yogi Berra. The dearly departed former Yankee was represented by his son, Larry, in a stirring moment:
