Yogi – Better Than the Average Human Being

Ouch!  That is gonna hurt!

No I am not talking about the picture.  I am talking about the loss of a great man – Yogi Berra.

In this picture, Berra leaps into the arms of pitcher Don Larsen after Larsen struck out the last Brooklyn Dodgers batter to complete his perfect game in Game 5 of the 1956 World Series.  (Thanks to the Associated Press)

Yogi gave us colloquialisms like “It ain’t over til it’s over.”   But he was more than a wordsmith, he was a soldier, athlete, manager and, more importantly, an honest, caring human being.  He knew he was lucky and felt a desire to share his luck through his philanthropic work.

Unfortunately for Yogi, it’s over.  But for us the memories live on.

For more on this incredible human being, see this website.
