Yogi Berra 71 Quotes

St. Louis, Missouri, must be lucky because it was the birthplace of American professional baseball star Yogi Berra. He was not only a player but also a baseball manager with a $5 million net worth.

He began playing baseball after dropping out of school in the eighth grade and joined the local American Legion squad. After noticing his remarkable growth, the St. Louis Cardinals offered him and his boyhood pals minor league contracts in 1942.

However, due to a financial issue, he declined the deal. He was later selected by the New York Yankees and received a $500 bonus.

Furthermore, he played for the Norfolk Taras in the Development League before departing for WWII. He later returned from the war to play for the Newark Bears. When he was brought up to the Major Leagues in 1946, his popularity made him a successful player in baseball history.

In his whole career, he won 13 World Series Championships as a player and manager, was named to the All-Star team 18 times, and so on. His honors and accomplishments are many, making it difficult to present them all in the articles.

Similarly, he was the most wealthy player. In 1961, he received a maximum salary of $61,000. But he is no longer with us, but his memory and contribution will live on in the pages of history. He passed away on September 22, 2015, at the age of 90.
