Yesterday, Hall of Fame Catcher Lawrence "Yogi" Berra passed away at the ripe old age of 90. Setting aside team rivalries and considering instead the love for the game, Yogi was one for the history books. In 1943, while working in a coal yard as a truck driver and also in a shoe factory, he spent his spare time playing amateur baseball. That's when he was recognize and drafted to the Yankees, where he would go on to play in more World Series games than any other player in history...
DECEMBER 5, 1975 - Yogi Berra, fired unexpectedly after piloting the club as a first-year manager to a 99-63 record and an American League pennant in 1964, returns to the Yankees as a coach after an 11-year absence. The hiring of the team's former all-star catcher and skipper to be Billy Martin’s bench coach marks the first time in the history of the game that a such a designation has been given to a member of the coaching staff.
