Yankees Legend Yogi Berra Dead at 90
It’s a sad day for Yankees fans the world over.
Baseball legend Yogi Berra has passed away at age 90. A ten-time World Series champ, Berra is considered to be one of the greatest New York Yankees of all-time, in addition to generally being viewed as one of the best baseball players of his (or any) generation. He was AL MVP three times, and played in fifteen All-Star games in his career. After his retirement in 1963, Berra became manager of the New York Mets. Nine years later, Berra was inducted into the Hall of Fame, earning the honor in 1972.
Of course, Berra is arguably better known for several turns of phrase he created over the years, called “Yogi-isms”. Most of them are phrases still used in pop culture today, such as “It ain’t over til it’s over” and “It’s deja vu all over again.”
Yogi Berra was an absolute legend, whose contributions to the game of baseball, as well as to pop culture, assure he’ll be remembered for ages to come. Our condolences go out to his family and friends. R.I.P.
