The Wit and Wisdom of Yogi Berra
by Phil Pepe
Author Phil Pepe takes readers along on Yogi Berra’s journey from St. Louis to New York's Yankee Stadium and Shea Stadium, including all the stops along the way--from his days as a tack-puller in a women's shoe factory, to a pre-game tribute in St.Louis, when he coined the phrase, "I want to thank all those that made this night necessary," to his induction into the Hall of Fame.
Phil Pepe explores Yogi Berra as a boy, player, hero, coach, manager, husband, and father, and jokester, including all of the ‘Yogi-isms,’ in an absorbing treatment that is simultaneously comical, thoughtful, and biographical.
