Yogi Bera (1929–2014) was the catcher for the New York Yankees for 17 years. After his playing days ended, he had a long career as a manager and a coach. Berra was a devoted Catholic. He was also known for his “yogi-isms,” funny and often dim-sounding statements that frequently held kernels of real wisdom.
