NEW YORK – New York Yankees legend Yogi Berra has died at the age of 90.

According to the Yogi Berra Museum’s Twitter account, the esteemed baseball Hall of Famer passed away on Tuesday night.

“It is with heavy hearts that we share the news that Yogi Berra passed away Tuesday night at the age of 90.”

Larry (Yogi) Berra made his Major League Baseball debut on September 22, 1946 and homered in his first game.

Berra was known as one of the greatest catchers of all time.

According to Yahoo Sports, over his 19-year baseball career,  Berra hit .285/.348/.482, with 358 home runs. He made 15 straight All-Star games and won three MVP awards during his 18 seasons with the Yankees.

He broke two major league records, appearing in 14 World Series, and winning 10 of them.

Berra was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1972, the same year the Yankees retired his number 8.

Aside from baseball, Berra was well known for his confusing quotes, also known as “Yogi-isms”.
