GLYNN CEO AND EXECUTNE DIRECTOR Run date: 1(yoJ'2015 by Sal Giarratani ~Thanksgiving, I eat raviolL " -- Yogi Berra "I really didn't say everything I said." -- Yogi Berra You know, the legendary NY Yankees catcher Yogi BelTa had a habit of saying some of the most stupid things and, after a while, everyone waited on his newest way of misstat- ing something. It became a big part of his overall legend sta- tus. Berra, 90, died on Sep- tember 22, the same date as his big league debut 69 years earlier. Did you know that the car- toon character Yogi Bear was named after Berra? Knowing him, I am sure he was a big fan of that Jellystone bear. The two quotes above are actually two sayings of his. He may have been one of the most beloved baseball players in history and, as an Italian-Ameri- can kid, he was one of us, too. Over his long career, he amassod a huge number of awards, citations and plaques. He called them all *celebrity crapola memorabilia." Sounds like he had Donald Trump's fil- ter before The Donald had it. However, I digress. He was more than just a player who be- came renowned for his lovable, linguistically dizzy =Yogi-isms. He was a]so known for his I0 World Series championships with some powerhouse Yankees teams during his long career. The NYPost had a great page one on him showing his photo with the words:"It ain't over 'til it's overI" He went to 14 World Series in his pinstripes during his 18 year career. Berra was also a member of the Greatest Generation and served on a gunboat during D-Day in 1944. He started his Yankee days in 1946 and retired after the 1963 season. He played alongside other Yankee legends like Joe DiMaggio, Mickey Mantle and Whitey Ford. Yogi was born Lawrence Peter Berra and got his nickname after going to a movie with other kids that had a yogi in it, and thus Yogi Berra was born.

GLYNN CEO AND EXEC~ DIRECTOR Run date: t0/9/20t5 I guess, like a yogi, he looked chunky and slow. He reached Yankee Stadium in the late part of the 1946 season and homered in his first at-bat. His breakthrough season was 1948, the year I was born. He hit .315 with 14 homers and 98 RBIs. He won theALMVPin 1951, 1954 and 1955. He holds the record for most World Series hits (71) and most games (75). He was an All Star fourteen times. He retired in 1963 and was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1972. Berra was also a manager who led both the New York Yankees and NY Mets into the World Series. The City of New York recently honored the late Yogi BeiTa by placing four stadium seats -- two from Shea Stadium and a pair of original Yankees Stadium -- at the City Hall entrance, with a Yankees pinstripe jersey bear- ing his No. 8 hanging above. Hoops & Hockey (Continued from Page 16) as an example of the classic player in today's NHL "That guy competes, game after game, year after year after year. We want those types of players that are going to compete." And so the competition begins -- the jockeying and positioning that will hopefully lead to a berth in the Stanley Cup playoffs in the spring. Some teams will make it, some will not. Compe- tition over the next six months will tell the tale.
