“It Ain’t over til it’s over.”
Rest in peace, Yogi Berra. The Hall of Fame catcher who had 10 World Series Championships under his belt passed away on Tuesday at the age of 90.
“It is with heavy hearts that we share the news that Yogi Berra passed away Tuesday night at the age of 90,” the Yogi Berra Museum wrote in a statement on Tuesday. “We celebrate his remarkable life, and are thankful he meant so much to so many. He will truly be missed.”
Berra played for 19 seasons in the MLB and caught Don Larsen’s Perfect Game in the World Series. Many people, when thinking of Berra, will reflect back to the video clip of him jumping into Larsen’s arms. After a successful career, Berra managed the New York Mets, New York Yankees, and the Houston Astros.
Berra was also famous for his “Yogi-isms.” They were adages that were confusing but so much sense. He was quoted as saying:
“It’s Deja Vu All over again”
“All Pitchers are liars or crybabies.”
Berra and his sense of humor will truly be missed. He left behind a legacy of greatness for future catchers to learn from.
