Blanc The first time I remember watching baseball on TV was in 1959. In New Jersey we got all the New York stations and even back then on our thirteen inch black and white we got channels 2, 4, 5, 7, 9, 11 and 13. The team I used to watch was the Yankees of course (no Mets back then). WPIX, channel 11 was the station, Ballantine Beer was the sponsor and the melodious Mel Allen was the announcer and color commentary was by Phil Rizzuto and Red Barber who would both become future Yankee all-star announcers. In '59 the Yankees had Yogi Berra catching, Bill Skowron at first, Tony Kubek at short, Bobby Richardson at second, Hector Lopez at third, Norm Siebern, Hank Bauer and Mickey Mantle in the outfield (Roger Marls was a year away). The pitching staff featured "perfect world series game" Don Larsen, Whitey Ford, Art Ditmar and Ralph Terry. Other notables on the squad were Clete Boyer, Enos Slaughter, Elston Howard (the first black player on the Yankees who would go on to succeed Yogi at catcher) and Marv Throneberry of Lite Beer commercial fame. The Mic, Played in a 143 games that yea( in center field and in the very physically demanding position of catcher, playing the second most games on the roster at 116 was Yogi Berra. It's amazing that almost sixty years later, the boomers, millennials and x-gens know who Yogi is. He died last week at ninety but what gave this tough kid from a tough Saint Louis neighborhood the staying power that he or rather we enjoyed? He was born on May 12, 1925 as Lawrence Peter Berra to Italian immigrants. The eighth grade was as far as he got in school but it never stopped him from being the unwitting master or attributed master of malapropisms and generally witty sayings. "When you come to a fork in the road, take it." The fork in the road for Yogi may have been when he got serious about baseball and started playing American Legion Baseball. He got his nickname from a team mate who commented that the way he used to sit reminded him of an eastern "Yogi" and the name stuck. His talent for catching and hitting was apparent even though he was only 5'7" which was small for athletes even in the forties. The competition was tough in those days as future hall of famer Joe Garigiola was a neighbor from across the street. In 1942, Yogi was drafted by"He hits from both sides of the the Yankees at 17 and began plate. He's amphibious." playing minor league baseball. "1 always thought that record In 1943 after turning 18, he left would stand until itwas broken." baseball to serve in the Navy "1 don't know if they were men during.WWll where he crewed or women fans running naked on a rocket launching boat across the field. They had bags during the Normandy invasion at over their heads." Omaha and Utah Beaches. "If people don't want to .come After the war it was back out to the ballpark, how are you to the minors for the Newark. go!ngto stop them?" Bears before being called up to I m not going to buy my kids the "Bigs" at the end of the '46 an encyclopedia. Let them walk season when he played in eight to school like I did." games. His second year he "You've got to be very careful played in eighty-three games. In if you don't know where you are his last fourteen years he never going because you might not get fai!ed to play in less than one there." hundred games mostly in the "You can observe a lot just by physically demanding position of watching." catcher. "Nobody goes there anymore No one appeared in as many because it's too crowded. World Series as Yogi, fourteen and winning ten. He won his league MVP award three times. In the entire history of baseball only four players have earned that honor. He was named to the 'All Star Team for fifteen consecutive seasons: This baseball iron-man caught the highest number of games by an American League catcher eight times. He caught both games of a double header 117 times in his career. In 1947 he hit the first pinch hit home run ever. He caught Don Larsen's perfect World Series game in 1956 and he was named to the Baseball Hall of Fame in i972. Yogi went on to coach and manage the Yankees and the Mets and had less than a. stellar career in the dugout. But no one can match Yogi for his "Yogi- isms" whether he actually said them or just attributed to him. In a confession to reporters about all those sayings attributed to him, "1 really didn't.say everything I said," So much of what he said, like "it ain't over till it's over" is so ingrained in the American lexicon that it rivals his baseball career. It is such a part of the American linguistic landscape that Montclair State University bestowed an honorary doctorate of Letters on Yogi in 1996. And... from the Yog himself; :'A nickel ain't worth a dime anymore." "Baseball is ninety percent mental. The other half is physical." "It ain't the heat, it's the humility." During the '58 World Series, when told by future hall of famer Hank Aaron to turn the bat so he could read the label (to avoid breaking the bat) Yogi responded that "1 came here to hit, not to read ." As Yogi approached old age, his wife Carmen asked him, you are from St. Louis, we live in New Jersey, and you played ball in New York. If you go before I do, where would you like me to have you buried?" -Yogi replied "Surprise me." And Yogi's son Dale who had a pro baseball career himself said, "You can't compare me to my father. Our similarities are different." As Yogi said, "It's like Deja vu all over again." Hear Ye! Hear Ye! Here are the results from last week's Annual Chill Cook- off at the Legion. First place and People's Choice Award went to John Smith's Camp's Texas Chili. Second p/ace was won by Keith Jones and his King Kuba Chili. Third place was Geoff Dawson's All American Chill and best booth went to Jennifer Reed's Scarf it Chili. "1 think we risk becoming the best informed society that has ever died of ignorance..." -- Reuben Blades Rare Book Q: At one time, I was very interested in astronomy and sundials. I acquired a book called "Mechanick Dialling; or the New Art of Shadows" by Charles Leadbetter and published in 1756. It covers the source of creating sundials in great detail, with illustrations, for any "type of surface and any place in the world. In the 1700s, sundials were important for the average person, since clocks and watches were scarce and too expensive for anyone but the very wealthy. My book is in excellent condition, and all of the fold-out illustrations are intact. Could you help me find out the value of my book? -- LeRoy, Decatur, Illinois A: Your book sounds fascinating. To determine its value, I contacted several rare- book dealers and discovered that the first edition published in 1737 sells for about $500. Even though your edition was published a little later, it is still rare and desirable to collectors and would sell for about the same amount. I found a copy of the 1756 edition offered for sale by a London dealer at www.abe. com priced at $515.26. Q: My dad was a big fan of Adlai Stevenson, who ran for president during the early 1950s. I have a number of campaign buttons and wonder if they are worth keeping. -- Stan, Durango, Colorado A: Adlai Stevenson buttons, pins and badges from the 1950s generally sell in the $5 to $50 range. Some of the rarer items sell for more. To get a good idea of current values;, I suggest you get a copy of "Warman's Political Collectibles: Identification and Price Guide" by Dr. Enoch L. Nappen and published by Krause Books. Q: I have a fork that belonged to my uncle who served in World Warl in about !914. It has the same markings on both sides of the handle. Could you tell me its value? -- Helen, Princeton, Kentucky A: I was unable to find your fork in any of my military price guides, so nailing down a precise value is a little difficult. I suggest you show it to antique dealers in your area. Get several opinions. Write to Larry Cox in care of King Features Weekly Service, P.O.
