History the stamp represents:  Lawrence Peter “Yogi” Berra (May 12, 1925 – Sepember 22, 2015) is widely considered to be one of baseball’s greatest catchers and best clutch hitters of all time. He was an accomplished catcher and played 19 seasons of Major League Baseball, with nearly all of those with the New York Yankees. He later took on the roles of team manager and coach.

Yogi Berra signed with the Yankees when he was just 18 years old. However, his baseball career was put on hold almost immediately when he volunteered to fight in World War II. During the war, Berra joined the United States Navy and Served as a gunner’s mate. He took part in the Normandy landings, eventually earning a purple heart for his actions.

Finally, at the age of 21, Berra was able to start his professional baseball career. He was short compared to most players, just 5 feet, 7 inches tall, but was a powerful hitter and excellent catcher. By the time he retired from baseball, Berra had played or coached in 21 World Series games, with 13 of those being victories. He also set the Major League Baseball record for most shutouts caught in history (173), won 10 World Series rings, and played in 75 World Series games.

There will never be another player quite like Yogi Berra. Between his skills on the field and his famous “Yogi-isms,” his memory will live on forever.
