Yogi Berra ( May 12, 1925 - September 22, 2015)
Love or hate the Yankees, I think most of us had a special spot for Yogi. I think we can say it’s over. RIP Yogi.
Right behind Mickey Mantle as my favorite Yankee from the 50s and early 60s. One of the best bad ball hitters of all time.

Full Definition of YOGI from Merriam Webster:
1: a person who practices yoga
2: capitalized : an adherent of Yoga philosophy
3: a markedly reflective or mystical person
I practice Yogi Berra everyday.
I am an adherent of Yogi philosophy.
He was number 3 to a tee.
He was the only Yogi that America has ever produced.
It will never produce another.
He was as American as apple pie and baseball.
He was an American genius…in a baseball cap and shin guards.
Note: He came to the final fork in the road and took it.

He played in 14 world series and won the World Series 10 of the 18 seasons he played. How about that, in my best Mel Allen voice.

That ought to be the epitaph on his grave stone.
Yogi Berra is dead. Fly the world at half mast.
