Happy Birthday Yogi

Yogi Berra turns 80. Happy birthday.

His very finest:
Fellow Hall Of Famer Whitey Ford recalled a game against the Chicago White Sox where Berra was behind the plate.

Ford quickly allowed a double and a bunt, hit one batter and then watched Ted Kluszewski launch one off the outfield fence.

"I've thrown four pitches and I'm losing 3-0," Ford recalled. "Out to the mound comes (manager Casey) Stengel and he asks Yogi, `What kind of stuff has he (Ford) got?' And Yogi says, 'How the hell do I know? I haven't caught one yet!'
