Lawrence Peter "Yogi" Berra Wiki Biography

Lawrence Pietro “Yogi” Berra was born on the 12th May 1925, in St. Louis, Missouri USA, and died on the 22nd September 2015 in West Caldwell, New Jersey. He was best known for being not only a professional baseball player who played in Major League Baseball (MLB) for the New York Yankees, but was also a coach and manager. He was considered to be one of the best baseball catchers, as he won thrice the American League Most Valuable Player Award.

Have you ever wondered how rich was Yogi Berra? According to authoritative sources, it was estimated that the overall amount of Yogi Berra’s net worth was over $5 million, with the main sum of this fortune coming from his career in the sports industry as a professional baseball player, coach and manager. Another source came from appearing in a documentary movie.

Yogi Berra was raised with four siblings in the Italian area “The Hill” of St. Louis by Pietro Berra and Paolina Longoni, who were Italian immigrants. He went to South Side Catholic High School (now St. Mary’s High School) together with Joe Garagiola, a baseball player. Yogi didn’t finish school, as he left after the eighth grade and worked in a coal yard, to support the family. Soon he started learning how to play baseball in the positions of catcher, and infield as well. In no time, thanks to his skills, Yogi became a player in local American Legion teams, where he continued to develop his baseball skills, but also earned the nickname Yogi, as he resembled a Hindu yogi, according to his friend and teammate Jack Maguire.

Berra`s professional career began in 1946, after he returned from the World War II, where he served as a gunner`s mate on the USS Bayfield, playing in the Minor league for the Newark Bears. However, thanks to his great performance, he was called up by the New York Yankees the following season, and stayed with the team, until 1963, when he switched to work as a manager for the team, but in 1965 returned to baseball as a player, but this time he played for the New York Mets, where he finished his playing career.

During his time with the Yankees, Berra was 10 times World Series Champion, in 1947, five times consecutively from 1949 until 1953, and in the 1956, 1958, 1961 and the last one in 1962. Furthermore, Berra was named into the All Star team 18 times, consecutively from 1948 until 1962, considering that two all-star game were played from 1959 until 1962.

After retirement, Berra first started to work as a manager of the New York Yankees, but the following year he became the coach of the New York Mets, and stayed with the team until 1971. During that time, Berra won his first World Series Champion title as a coach in 1969. Berra then became the manager of the team until 1975, when he decided again to switch jersey, and rejoin the New York Yankees as coach. Berra won two more World Series Champion titles with the Yankees as a coach, making it his 13th in total. Before he left baseball for good, Berra served as manager of the Yankees, and was a coach of the Houston Astros from 1986 until 1989, which further increased his overall net worth.

Regarding Yogi Berra’s personal life, he married Carmen in January of 1949, with whom he had three children. Their residence was in Montclair, New Jersey, where he passed away at the age of 90 from complications caused by a stroke. Yogi was recognized as a big supporter of the National Italian American Foundation (NIAF). He was a recipient of an honorary degree from Montclair State University, which opened the Yogi Berra Museum.
