How very sad!
On Tuesday, it was confirmed that New York Yankees legend Yogi Berra passed away at 90 years old.
In case you forgot, the all-star catcher played for the NYC team between 1946 to 1963 and won a total of 10 World Series rings. FIERCE!
He also played one year with the Mets before retiring in 1965. In fact, Yogi played alongside baseball greats Joe DiMaggio and Mickey Mantle — what a legacy to leave behind.
Though few may know that outside of his MLB career, Yogi dropped out of the 8th grade to help support his family and later served in the U.S. Navy during World War II. Wow!
The Yogi Berra Museum and Learning Center in New Jersey took to Twitter to announce the passing of the beloved icon.
Nonetheless, the Hall of Famer was so much more than just an American athlete especially since he was widely known for his quirky idioms. Aww!
Previously, he stated:
"Baseball is 90 percent mental. The other half is physical."
LOLz! He'll most definitely be missed.
