Have you ever wondered how it would be like to be living a life like a famous baseball player? The title of this book is Yogi: It Ain't Over by Yogi Berra and Tom Horton. This book is about Yogi Berra's life and what happened during his baseball career.
The main character is Yogi Berra. This book mainly takes place in New York. It takes place in New York because that is where Yogi spent most of his time as a baseball player.
Yogi: It Ain't Over is about one of the greatest baseball players in Major Legue Baseball. Lawrence Peter "Yogi" Berra was a catcher from the New York Yankees and he was a good catcher. Being a good catcher didn't allow him to be a good baseball player, he also could hit. He also was elected American League (AL) MVP three times, in 1951, 1954, and 1955. He was elected into the Hall of Fame in 1972. After he was dismissed by the Yankees he became the manager of the Yankees, then the Mets, and back to the Yankees. Before all of that happened he joined the navy and fought in World War II. The whole title of the book is Yogi: It Ain't Over Till It's Over. Yogi has a wife named Carmen and three sons: Dale, Larry, and Timmy.
This book is a good book. This book inspired me to play my best in baseball because Yogi Berra played in the MLB and was an 8th grade dropout. I'm not saying I want to be a high school dropout and try for the majors. I'm saying that I want to try to make it into the AAA division in the minor leagues or even better the major league and I only started to play baseball in 6th grade. I would recommend this book to people that would like to know about old baseball players and to people that like sports and auto-biographies.
