It's Over: Farewell Yogi Berra

A few years ago on Yogi Berra's birthday, I tweeted out a birthday greeting with a link to a YouTube video of his career highlights. A British Twitter follower responded to my tweet by telling me he had not been aware that Mr. Berra was in fact a real person. Yogi Berra, who died Tuesday at 90 years old, was a very real person. He lived a long life, but in recent years was better known for his malapropisms than for his accomplishments with the Yankees or the extraordinary life he led off the field.
