Iconic Yankees catcher Yogi Berra dies at 90.

 

Yogi Berra, the Hall of Fame catcher renowned as much for his dizzying sayings as his record 10 World Series championships with the New York Yankees, has died. He was 90.  In 1956, he caught the only perfect game in World Series history and after the last out leaped into pitcher Don Larsen’s arms. The famous moment was captured in photographs published in newspapers around the world.  After his playing days, Berra coached or managed the Yankees, New York Mets and Houston Astros. He led both the Yankees and Mets to pennants. “It ain’t over ’til it’s over” is among Yogi’s most quoted and famous sayings……and can’t forget about this one:  “Little League baseball is a very good thing because it keeps the parents off the streets.” 

Rest in Peace, Yogi…..and thanks for the memories!
