Yogi Berra, the beloved baseball player who became known as much for mind-bending aphorisms like 'It ain't over till it's over' as for his Hall of Fame career as a catcher, has died. He was 90. Berra, a fixture of 10 New York Yankees world championship teams who won three MVP awards and later managed pennant-winners for the Mets and Yankees, died late Tuesday. Berra managed the Yankees in 1964, then crossed town to play one season for the Mets before retiring as a player. He managed the Mets for four seasons in the 1970s and the Yankees again in 1984 and 1985.
