Making his major-league debut in 1946, he was a mainstay in the Yankees’ lineup during the team’s championship years in the 1940’s and 1950’s. Despite his short stature, Berra was a power hitter and strong defensive catcher. Berra caught Don Larsen’s perfect game in Game 5 of the 1956 World Series, the only perfect game in MLB postseason history. After playing 18 seasons with the Yankees, Berra retired following the 1963 season. He spent one season as their manager, then joined the New York Mets in 1965 as coach (and briefly a player again).

Berra returned to the Yankees in 1976, coaching them for eight seasons and managing for two, before coaching the Houston Astros.
