Former Yankees Hall of Fame catcher Yogi Berra dies at 90
Wednesday September 23rd, 2015

Hall of Fame catcher and baseball icon Yogi Berra died on Tuesday night, 69 years to the day after his MLB debut, at the age of 90, the Yogi Berra Museum confirmed to SI.com.

Widely considered one of the game's all-time greatest catchers, Berra spent 18 years with the New York Yankees. He made 18 consecutive All-Star Game appearances from 1948 to '62 and was named the American League's MVP in 1951, ’54 and ’55.

Berra was a lifetime .285 hitter who hit 358 home runs and collected 1,430 RBIs. He played in 14 World Series as a player, winning 10 championships with the Yankees.

After his playing career, Berra managed the Yankees and later the Mets. He is one of only six managers to lead NL and AL teams to the World Series.

As well as his baseball accolades, Berra is well remembered for his vivacious personality and Yogi-isms.
