Book Summary 

"Well, what's it going to be, Larry?" pressed Causino.

"Baseball," answered young Berra.

"That's what it's got to be.  Baseball."

And so began one of the most remarkable and successful careers in the history of American sports.  Born Lawrence Peter Berra in 1920s St. Louis, but known around the neighborhood as Yogi, the son of two Italian immigrants would go on become arguably the most successful man in baseball.  The short, unorthodox-looking Berra overcame long odds and vicious taunting from teammates, opponents, and the media to post a staggering playing career:  three MVP awards, 10 world series World Series championships, and a host of catching records, all the while serving as the backbone of some of the greatest Yankees teams in history.  Known around the neighborhood as Yogi, the son of two Italian immigrants would go on to become arguably the most accomplished man in the history of baseball, as well as a global icon and one of the game's greatest ambassadors.
