Perhaps one of the most popular players in Major League history, Yogi Berra was also a brilliant catcher and dominant hitter during his 19-year career with the New York Yankees. Berra was named to the American League All-Star team every year from 1948-62. He topped the 100-RBI mark four years in a row and became a three-time American League MVP in a career that featured 14 league pennants and 10 World Series championships. Known for his "Yogi-isms," Berra was always been a fan favorite. Following his playing career, Yogi continued in baseball as a manager and coach for several teams.
Elected to the Hall of Fame in 1972
