Happy Birthday Yogi!

@SportsBata

Former Yankees great, Yogi Berra, celebrates his 86th birthday today! He was a great player often overshadowed because he played along side all the Yankee immortals. Yogi is known best for his memorable quotes like “It ain’t over till it’s over”. He was a three-time American League MVP, 13-time World Series Champion, and 18 time All-Star. His full name is Lawrence Peter Berra. Check out this “Who Said It” excerpt, courtesy yardbarker:
