Hall of Fame catcher and Yankees legend Yogi Berra passed away late Tuesday night at 90 years old.

Berra spent 18 of his playing years with the Yankees, and later went on to manage both the Yankees and the Mets, leading both to the World Series. As a player, he participated in 14 World Series and won 10.

He ended his playing career with a .285 batting average, 358 home runs, 1,430 RBIs and 18 consecutive invitations to the All-Star Game. But despite his success on the field, Berra was perhaps even more well known for his “Yogi-ism” and the personality that made him a baseball icon.

In reaction to Berra’s death, athletes took to Twitter to express their sadness at the news.
