Have you ever heard of the baseball great Yogi Berra? Obviously that’s not his real name, but he is definitely the real deal when it comes to baseball and his MLB career (among other things).

Born Lawrence Peter Berra, his 19-year baseball playing career was played almost completely with the New York Yankees. He then went on to manage and coach and was elected to the Baseball hall of Fame in 1972.
