I always hated the Yankees. I was a New York Giant fan before they moved to SF and then I just took pleasure rooting against the Yankees, but… Yogi Berra was one of a kind, not because of his many supposed sayings but because he was an extraordinary athlete, a comsummate competiter. I can’t count the games I saw in the late innings Mantle and Berra winning the game with clutch hitting.
The one confirmed Yogi-ism I like relates to the below video. More than 50 years later, he signed a photograph of the play for President Obama, writing, “Dear Mr. President, He was out!”
