Yogi Berra 1925-2015
White Sox fans have sadly lost two of their franchise icons in 2015–Minnie Minoso and Billy Pierce.
Now, New York Yankees Hall of Famer Yogi Berra–who won more World Series rings (10) than any major leaguer in history and later became a national treasure with his legendary Yogi-isms–has passed away at the age of 90.
Yogi made a positive impact with virtually everyone he met. Robin Ventura, David Robertson and Don Cooper all got to know Yogi well during their time with the Yankees. Hawk Harrelson played against him. Click on the link below for some of their thoughts:
