Synopsis by Mark Deming

The ever-quotable Yogi Berra gets the tribute he deserves in this documentary, which explores the life and career of the lovable but determined baseball legend. Yogi Berra: American Sports Legend tells the tale of a kid from St. Louis who rose from minor-league ball to become a star catcher and hitter for the New York Yankees, playing in 14 World Series and 15 All-Star games, later becoming a coach and manager who in 1973 took the New York Mets, long the laughingstock of American baseball, to a National League pennant. Yogi Berra: American Sports Legend features interviews with Phil Rizzuto, Ted Williams, Jim Bouton, and Billy Crystal; Bob Costas narrates.
