Lawrence Peter "Yogi" Berra (1925-2015)

The greatest winner in baseball history, Yogi Berra, passed away on Tuesday at the age of 90.

Lawrence Peter Berra was born on May 12th, 1925...  it was an honor to write his 90th Happy Baseball Birthday earlier this year.

No player in baseball history won more championships than Yogi Berra, winning 10 World Series while the catcher of the New York Yankees.

Yogi was a great ballplayer and an even better person, and we we miss him dearly as he passes on to the greatest baseball team ever in Heaven.

Tonight the Yankees will start to honor Yogi by wearing his retired #8 (with Bill Dickey), on the left sleeve of their road uniforms when they play the Blue Jays.

My heart goes out to the entire Berra family, and all the great Yankees fans out there on the loss of Yogi.

God Bless Yogi Berra.
