RIP: Yogi Berra Passes Away at 90-Years Old

The great Yankees catcher, manager, teammate, person, legend, coach and personality passed away early this morning in an assisted living home while sleeping. Berra was 90-years old. Not only did the Yankees organization and their family, Berra’s family and Major League Baseball lose a great soul today but so did the world. Berra and his family lived and personified the “American Dream.” Berra’s parents were both immigrants with Yogi’s father coming over to Ellis Island at the turn of the century in 1908. Berra fought in World War II and was in France on D-Day as a member of the U.S. Navy. Berra was America and the world lost a great person today.

Our condolences, thoughts and prayers go out to anyone affected, especially the Berra friends and family. Rest in peace Yogi, while it got late far too early for you here on Earth I feel confident that you brought your book of “Yogi-isms” and your 10 World Series championship rings right along with you to heaven. Save me a seat!
