The great catcher and revered Yankee has died of natural causes. He was 90. Some will remember him for his funny lines, "It's not over 'til it's over." Or "It's déjà vu all over again." New York Yankee fans, however, will remember him for so much more. RIP, Yogi.

A NJ treasure and loss to us all.   He served in WWII.    A kind and gentle man.

 

There was a movement to get him a Medal of Freedom before he died.    But Obama has refused.   Sad.

This is so sad - one of the last great baseball legends. Loved the man!

He was my favorite Yankee player of all time.   No one will ever win as many championships as he did, (Ten).  

Most of the top WS winners in the history of MLB played for the Yankees.  (This is not surprising at all since they have won the most championships).
