I thought that it might be nice to take a look back at the career of one of the greatest (and funniest) men to ever wear pinstripes.
Yogi Berra did not make his debut for the New York Yankees until 1946 as a 21-year-old. He only played in seven games that season, but he hit his first two home runs during those games and showed enough promise to earn substantial playing time the following year.
It turned out that that was an excellent decision for the New York Yankees. That very next season, he came in 15th in the MVP voting.
The reason that that is significant is because Yogi Berra received MVP votes every year between 1947 and 1961. That would be phenomenal for any player, but given the physical demands placed upon the catcher, it's even more remarkable.
