Yogi Berra, the Hall of Fame New York Yankees catcher also known for his entertaining "Yogi-isms," died Tuesday at the age of 90. On Wednesday, longtime Orioles slugger Boog Powell remembered an interaction with Berra.
"He was wonderful to be around, humble and straightforward, a no b.s. kind of guy -- unless you were batting and he was behind the plate," Powell said.
"In my first year (1962), I came to bat at Yankee Stadium and, right away, Yogi started talking to me.
"He said, 'How ya doin'? Did you go out to dinner last night?' Strike one.
