The greatest baseball player of all time Yogi Berra was born in St. Louis, Missouri. He started his professional baseball career with the Yankees in 1946. The last season he played for the team was 1964 and then he became a coach. For most of his playing years, he wore the number 8 on his shirt. Although he only averaged one home run per season during his 18-year career, people are much more familiar with some of his humorous quotes than they are with his home run totals.
