Caught Don Larsen's perfect game in 1956; the image of Berra leaping into Larsen's arms after the win was an iconic image in baseball history.
The Yankees retired his uniform number, 8, in 1972.
Named to the Major League Baseball All-Century team in 1999.
His neighbor and boyhood best friend was Joe Garagiola, fellow Hall of Famer and player for the Cardinals, Pirates, Cubs and Giants.
Hit the first pinch-hit home run in history during Game 3 of the 1947 World Series.
Considered one of the two best clutch hitters in the game; Berra was capable of picking off pitches from all areas in the strike zone.
Was also a solid defensive outfielder for the Yankees.
Owned a bowling lane in New Jersey with fellow Yankee great Phil Rizzuto.
Among his greatest "Yogi-isms": 90 % of [the game] is half mental': "You can observe a lot by watching"; "Always go to other people's funerals. Otherwise they won't go to yours" and "I really didn't say everything I said."
