Don Mattingly Remembers Yogi Berra

Wednesday, September 23, 2015

“Yogi was such a great inspiration for so many people and treated everyone with respect and kindness.  He epitomized what it really meant to be a New York Yankee. His legendary achievements on the field was only outdone by his humility off the field.   It’s been an honor to call you a friend, we will all miss you Yogi.”

-Don Mattingly
