Yogi Berra, the New York Yankees All-Star catcher who became as famed for his humorous adages as his athletic prowess, died Tuesday, the Yogi Berra Museum reported. He was 90.
“It is with heavy hearts that we share the news that Yogi Berra passed away Tuesday night at the age of 90,” the museum wrote in a statement.
The New York Yankees and Major League Baseball also reported news of Berra’s death
The legendary athlete was one of the most beloved competitors of our time — his kindness, humility and good humor complemented his gifts on the baseball diamond. Some of Berra’s famous quotes, such as “It ain’t over ’til it’s over,” became timeless and are still repeated today.
Berra played on 14 pennant-winning and 10 World Championship teams — more than any other player in baseball history.
