Throughout their historic rivalry, the Red Sox and New York Yankees have been in many fights between players on the field and fans off the field. But in a time like this, you put aside the jersey and pay respect where it's due.
On September 22, 2015, baseball lost one of their all-time greats. Yankees Hall of Fame catcher, Yogi Berra died last night at the age of 90.
Ever since his major league career began in 1946, Berra hasn't left the wonderful game of baseball. Whether as a player, coach, mentor, etc., Berra was always around to help.
Berra finished his 19 year, hall of fame career, sporting a .285 career batting average with 358 home runs and 2150 hits. Let's not forget that he played 19 seasons as a catcher, which is very hard to do. He was inducted into the baseball hall of fame in the Class of '72.
Even though he was a Yankee, his death spells sorrow all over the game of baseball, so put aside your hate for New York and pay respects to one of the greats. We will miss Yogi Berra.
