Yankees Great Yogi Berra Dies At 90

Baseball Hall of Famer Yogi Berra, a three-time MVP and member of 10 World Series championship teams as a member of the New York Yankees, died on Tuesday night of natural causes, his museum announced. He was 90.

Berra died 69 years to the day of his Major League debut on Sept. 22, 1946, when he also hit the first of his 358 career home runs.

He was considered one of the greatest players of all time on the field, and one of the sport’s most colorful and quotable characters off of it. Called “Yogi-isms,” these phrases remain common in popular culture, including, “It ain’t over ’til it’s over,” and “It’s deja vu all over again.”
