Iconic Yankees Catcher Yogi Berra Dies At Age 90

By  | 

Among the all time great New York Yankees players, Yogi Berra, died late Tuesday night. He was 90 years old.

Berra played with the Yankees in the major leagues, 18. He was chosen to 15 straight All-Star games and won three MVP awards. Over his career, Berra hit .285/.348/.482, with 358 home runs, according to Big League Stew. He’s regarded as among the best catchers to play the match.

Through his profession, Berra appeared in 14 World Series as a player, winning 10 total. Both of those amounts stand as major league records now.

After retiring from play, Berra would go on to manage the New York Mets as well as the Yankees through seven seasons. He compiled a 484-444 record in his tenure as manager.

In 1972, Berra was elected into the Hall of Fame. The Yankees retired his No. 8 jersey that same year.

After baseball, Berra was still a star, starring in multiple ads that emphasized his vivacious character off the field, based on Chris Cwik at Big League Stew, and his tendency for confounding quotations, like, It aint through till its over, and Baseball is ninety percent mental, and the other half is physical. Um, what?

It’s possible for you to see Berra placing those vexing quotations to great use in this hilarious 1987 Miller Lite advertising (featuring none besides Seinfelds Jason Alexander).

Thus, we estimate its over now. Yogi, rENT.
