Baseball icon Yogi Berra passes away

In a Tweet sent out about 11 p.m. Tuesday, the Yogi Berra Museum reported the Major League Baseball Hall of Fame catcher’s passing. He was 90.
“Yogi” Berra was born Lawrence Peter Berra in St. Louis in 1925.
The New York Yankees icon earned 15 consecutive All-Star game appearances over 19 total playing seasons. He batted .285 for his career, and slugged 358 home runs.
Berra has appeared in 14, and won 10 World Series championships, more than any other player in MLB history.
He was honored as the game’s Most Valuable Player three teams, and managed both the New York Yankees and Mets to league pennants following his playing career.
He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1972, the same year the Yankees retired his famous number 8.
Bera’s infectious personality transcended the ball diamond. His knack for articulating original truisms — “yogisms” — made him a favorite of even non-baseball fans.
He coined now-famous sayings like, “it ain’t over, til it’s over,” and, “when you come to a fork in the road, take it.”
Berra is also credited for offering the following piece of advice to young baseball players, “Baseball is 90 percent mental. The other half is physical.”
