Hall of Fame catcher and New York Yankees legend Yogi Berra died Tuesday at age 90, the Yogi Berra Museum announced and the Yankees and MLB confirmed.
Considered one of the greatest catchers of all time, Berra was a three-time AL MVP who became at least as well-known for his unusual sayings as his Hall of Fame career.
He appeared in 14 World Series for the Yankees during their dynasty era, the first in 1947, and won the first of his three MVPs in 1951 (the others came 1954 and 1955). He was a 15-time All-Star, who played alongside Mickey Mantle and Whitey Ford and caught Don Larsen's perfect game in the 1956 Series.
He was enshrined in Cooperstown in 1972.
Berra also managed in the majors, compiling a .522 winning percentage in seven season piloting the Yankees (1964, 1984, 1985) and Mets (1972-75).
