Former New York Yankees catcher Yogi Berra passed away Tuesday.
NEW YORK — Former New York Yankees catcher Lawrence Peter "Yogi" Berra has passed away. He was 90 years old. Ironically, the beloved Bronx Bomber made his Major League Baseball debut, with the Yanks, on the very day he passed in 1946 (September 22).
He played with the Yankees through the 1963 season, and during that time he helped New York win 10 World-Series titles (1947, 1949 - 1953, 1956, 1958, 1961 and 1962).
Berra played in 18 All-Star Games and was voted the American League Most Valuable Player in three seasons (1951, 1954 and 1955).
Some of Berra's more well-known teammates included Phil Rizzuto, Joe DiMaggio, Mickey Mantle, Hank Bauer, Roger Maris, Whitey Ford and Joe Pepitone, And even with all that talent surrounding him, from 1949 to 1955, Berra led the Yankees each of those seasons in RBIs.
The Hall-of-Famer died of natural causes on Tuesday. Beyond baseball, Berra was know for his famous quotes aka Yogi-isms.
And as he once so eloquently put it: "The future ain't what it used to be."
The world will be less interesting without you, Yogi. Rest in peace.
