Cal Ripken Jr.: 'When you think about Yogi Berra, you naturally smile'
Thursday September 24th, 2015

The Yankees honored the late Yogi Berra before Thursday night’s game against the White Sox at Yankee Stadium.

Berra, the Hall of Fame catcher and baseball icon, died on Tuesday night at the age of 90. He spent 18 years with the Yankees, made 18 consecutive All-Star Game appearances from 1948 to ’62 and was named the American League MVP in 1951, ’54 and ’55.

Tributes poured in from across baseball after his death and stretched beyond the sport when New York’s Empire State Building was illuminated with pinstripes in Berra’s honor on Wednesday night. The Yankees also wore Berra’s No. 8 on their left jersey sleeves against the Blue Jays in Toronto.
