Hall of Fame Catcher Yogi Berra Dies
Yogi Berra, the Hall of Fame catcher renowned for his record 10 World Series championships with the New York Yankees, has died. He was 90. Berra died of natural causes at his home in New Jersey.
Berra was a legendary Yankee who helped his team reach 14 World Series during his 18 seasons in the Bronx. Berra played in more World Series games than any other major leaguer, and was a three time American League Most Valuable Player.
But his name appears almost as often in Bartlett's Famous Quotations as it does in baseball's record book.
