NEW YORK –– New York Yankees legend Yogi Berra has died at the age of 90.

According to the Yogi Berra Museum’s Twitter account, the esteemed baseball Hall of Famer passed away on Tuesday night.

"It is with heavy hearts that we share the news that Yogi Berra passed away Tuesday night at the age of 90."

Larry (Yogi) Berra was born in St. Louis in 1925, making his Major League Baseball debut on Sept. 22, 1946 and homering in his first game. He was a catcher for the New York Yankees until 1963, then played one year for the New York Mets before retiring from playing, though he would go on to manage both of those teams.

Berra is a three-time American League MVP and has the most World Series titles as a player with 10, which puts him -- as an individual -- third in overall titles behind the St. Louis Cardinals and Yankees. If you count his World Series titles as a manager, he's second only to the Yankees.
