Baseball legend Yogi Berra dies aged 90: MLB
Wed Sep 23, 2015 Yogi Berra, a Hall of Fame catcher for the New York Yankees and one of baseball's most well-known players, has died, Major League Baseball said on Tuesday. He was 90 years old.
Quote:
"We mourn the passing of Yankees icon and Hall of Famer Yogi Berra," the MLB said in a tweet. The Yankees said in a tribute on Twitter: "We are deeply saddened by the loss of a Yankees legend and American hero."

Lawrence Peter Berra, known to the world as Yogi, was a tough catcher and a feared clutch hitter who helped the Yankees dominate baseball from 1947 to 1963. On a team packed with great players like Mickey Mantle and Joe DiMaggio, Berra led the Yanks in runs batted in for seven consecutive seasons.

He won the American League's most valuable player award three times in the 1950s, was a 15-time all star and entered baseball's Hall of Fame in 1972. After retiring as a player, Berra became one of only six managers to lead separate American and National League teams to the World Series.
