We have just received news that American baseball legend Yogi Berra died on Tuesday at the age of 90 in Montclair, New Jersey.

Although there have been rumors that Berra died from a heart disease, it hasn’t been confirmed yet what actually killed the 90-year-old baseball legend.

Berra, who is considered one of the best catchers in the entire history of baseball, died on September 22, 2015, which is coincidentally the same day he made his Major League Baseball debut exactly 69 years ago on September 22, 1946 for the New York Yankees.

Berra spent the majority of his 19-year-old baseball career playing for the New York Yankees. He played with the Yankees from 1946 to 1963. He then went on to play for just a year with the New York Mets before eventually retiring as a professional baseball player in 1965.

Berra later went on to work as the manager of both the New York Yankees and the New York Mets. Berra was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1972 while still managing the New York Mets.

Berra was married to Carmen from 1949 until her death on March 6, 2014. Carmen died as a result of complications from a stroke she suffered from. Berra and Carmen had three sons together.

Besides being known as a legendary baseball player, Berra was also known for his paradoxical quotes. One of his famous quotes is the quote, “It aint over ’till it’s over”.
