Summary
Yogi Berra is one of the greatest catchers and clutch hitters in the history of baseball. His heroics on the field and his humanitarian efforts made off it remain the stuff of legend. And his one-of-a-kind observations have fashioned him into an oft-quoted American folk hero - with such quips as "it's deja Vu all over again" and "A nickel ain't worth a dime anymore." Yogi's love for the game began when he was a boy in St. Louis, playing sandlot ball and listening to games and players on the radio. Through these shows he got to know the players, who inspired him to live out his dream. In this collection, Yogi has personally selected the old-time radio programs that remind him of what the game was like, many starring his dear friends
