Happy Birthday Yogi!

Lawrence Peter Berra, born May 12, 1925 in Saint Louis Missouri. Everybody pair off in threes to celebrate!
I've always liked Yogi. Once I had to wait in my dentist's office for a hour or so where I read Yogi's autobiography. Unlike a lot of the players of today he seems so humble and appreciative of all that baseball did for him. A D-Day veteran and all around good guy he has some impressive stats as a player, such as calling Don Larson's perfect game in the 1956 World Series, about which he remarked "It's never happened in World Series history, and it hasn't happened since."
