I watched Yogi from when I was 7-8 and watched the Yankees on Channel 11, WPIX in New York. He was without doubt the “best bad ball hitter” in baseball. He was a great talent and that had nothing to do with his syntax. I remember when in 60-61 his catching talents were starting to wane. The Yankees moved him to left field and he was immediately one of the best left fielders in the American League.
His difficulty with the words endeared him to the world. His contributions to the Yankee legend were extraordinary
