22/09/2015 Catcher Yogi Berra dies

Berra died at age 90 of natural causes in his sleep in West Caldwell, New Jersey, in September 2015, 69 years to the day after his MLB debut. The Yankees added a number "8" patch to their uniforms in honor of Berra, and the Empire State Building was lit with vertical blue and white Yankee "pinstripes". New York City lowered all flags in the city to half-staff for a day in tribute.
