Like it was Yogi’s fault Bob Gibson was unhittable. Yutz.
You can’t help but feel sorry for Yogi. Definitely got the short end of the stick.
There were some good ball players in that series. It’s funny to think of yogi Berra fired from Yankees. Ghost of Steinbrenner to come.
Making it to the World Series isn’t always enough, depending on the team. Welcome to sports….
