(MEDIA GENERAL) – The baseball world mourns one of its own Wednesday. New York Yankees legend Yogi Berra died late Tuesday of natural causes. He was 90.
Berra, known as much for his quick quips and malapropisms, won 10 World Series rings with the Yankees. Berra, a three-time American League MVP, was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1972.
Baseball’s best took to Twitter to acknowledge No. 8.
No! Say it ain't so. He was a good man, my former manager and friend! RIP Yogi. https://t.co/X5SauCYQty

As much as we'll remember Yogi Berra for his glorious baseball life, his service to our country needs to be remembered, too. He was a legend
