Description

Few men in sports history have accomplished more than Yogi Berra: three MVP Awards, 21 World Series appearances as a player, coach, and manager, and a plaque in Cooperstown honoring him as arguably the greatest catcher to ever play the position. Off the field, the man often derided for his appearance has become one of the most beloved and enduring sports figures of all time, as well as a successful pitchman and the source of some of the most-repeated expressions in the English language. Now get ready to listen to the true story of how it all happened.

Carlo DeVito's Yogi is the first comprehensive biography of the greatest living Yankee and sheds new light on all aspects of Berra's life, from his humble beginnings in Depression-era St. Louis to his naval service during World War II; from his early days with DiMaggio and the Yankees to his later success with Mantle and Maris; and from his coaching and managing career in the Bronx Zoo to the astute business moves that capitalized on his celebrity status and cemented him as an American icon.

For the first time, get the complete truth behind this famous and often misunderstood baseball great. After separating fact from fiction, one truth remains: There's only one Yogi.
