Playing Baseball Legend Yogi Berra Dies at 90

Baseball icon Yogi Berra died Tuesday at the age of 90, the Yogi Berra Museum confirmed to Sports Illustrated.

The Hall of Fame catcher died 69 years to the day after making his debut in Major League Baseball, a 19-year career that Berra spent entirely with the New York Yankees. He made 18 consecutive All-Star Game appearances from 1948-62 and won the league's MVP award in 1951, 1954, and 1956.

Berra, widely considered one of the greatest catchers ever to play the game, helped lead the Yankees to 14 World Series, winning 10 championships with the Bronx Bombers.

After he retired from playing, Berra managed both the Yankees and Mets, becoming one of only six managers to lead teams from both the National and American Leagues to the World Series.
