Yogi Berra

As I'm sure you've heard by now, Yogi Berra passed away the other day. Like most guys growing up in the 50's and 60's, I was all about baseball. It truly was the national pastime and love 'em or hate 'em, the Yankees were always contenders back then - Maris, Mantle, Skowron, Howard, Ford, Pepitone, and Berra, my personal hero. By any measure he's probably the greatest catcher of all time - MVP three times, 15 All Star appearances and 10 World Series rings for both his playing and managing. By all accounts he was also a great man. I read the book Driving Mr. Yogi a couple of years back. If you're a baseball fan or a Yogi fan, it's a must read. Rest In Peace, Yogi.
