    One can argue that he may have been the greatest Yankee player. From 1949-1955, Yogi led the Yankees in RBI in seven consecutive seasons...keep in mind DiMaggio and Mantle was in the lineup. He was nominated for MVP in fifteen consecutive seasons...more than any that wore the fabled pinstripes. The amount and the array of records held by Yogi is truly bewildering. Despite his short stature, no one can say that he does not stand shoulder to shoulder with the greatest players and especially to me, the greatest Yankees that ever played.

    At Normandy he was at both Omaha and Utah. As a baseball manager, he led both American and National league teams to the World Series. The world was not big enough of an oyster for Yogi.

    NYY 8 shall live forever.

      He also played in 18 All-Star games and caught both ends of a doubleheader after DiMaggio guilted him into it.


      Listen to Mike Krukow shared funny memories about Yogi. http://www.knbr.com/2015/09/23/kruko...ith-murph-mac/

          Yogi Berra actually sued Hanna-Barbera for defamation. The studio claimed that the name was coincidental even though at the time the cartoon character was introduced, Yogi Berra was a name everyone already knew.

          Yogi Bear was originally the sidekick of Huckleberry Hound and was based on the Ed Norton sidekick character from The Honeymooners. Yogi Bear proved more popular than Huckleberry Hound so the studio spun that character into his own show and was given his own sidekick - Boo-Boo Bear.

          The lawsuit was withdrawn but no one knows there was a private settlement deal. Recent reports not say that Yogi Berra was indeed the inspiration behind the cartoon character's name. But then again, maybe it is a bandwagon thing to try to revive the old studio's characters and fortune.

            I will miss him. He was my dad's favorite player. My cousin's mom grew up knowing him, his wife, Garagiola and his wife, and their families on the hill in South St. Louis. Her mom was good friends with Mickey Garagiola, former wrestling announcer(Joe's bro) and his wife. I am told he was one in a million. RIP

              Thank you. He was still smarter than the average bear.
