A sad day for fans, and seriously, who could not be a fan of Yogi?
Surprisingly fine tribute to a great human being and, yes indeed, the greatest catcher of all time, here:

Another good one here:

Nice video hilites and a good interview with veteran sportswriter Bill Madden here:

A sad day, indeed.

My grandfather took me to my first Yankees game when I was a kid during the magical summer of 1961.
I can still see Yogi parking one in the right field seats to lead the Bronx Bombers over the expansion Los Angeles Angels.

Priceless memories ... and I still have the pair of tickets from that hot August night.
