Yogi Berra never ceases to amaze me. Yogi and his wife Carmen continue to share, in their humble, unassuming way, their passion and energies with so many people and causes, so that “everyone in America can be what they want to be.”
Yogi Berra was reunited with a piece of baseball history on Wednesday when a collector presented him with a game-worn jersey. Big deal, you say?
