MONTCLAIR, NJ - Yogi Berra died Tuesday night at age 90.
Berra had a career that transcended baseball. He was a Hall of Famer, all-time Yankees legend, three-time Most Valuable Player originator of the Yogi-ism and an international legend.
Yogi is the only player in baseball to have won 10 World Championships with one team. He and Don Larsen both witnessed Larsen's and David Cone's perfect game in Oct. 8, 1956 as players and spectators during Yogi Berra Day on July 18, 1999.
He will be long remembered for sayings like:
- "No-one goes there anymore, its to crowded."
- "It’s like deja-vu all over again."
- "It ain’t over till it’s over.
- "You should always go to other people's funerals, otherwise, they won't come to yours."
A statement released by the Berra Museum in Little Falls about the Yankee great said Berra's “passing has created a void that cannot be filled, even by the myriad anecdotes -- some accurate, others exaggerated -- about him and the dozens of records he established.”
