Reading Baseball: Why I Won't Buy the Yogi Berra Stamp
The U.S. Postal Service recently released its Yogi Berra commemorative stamp.
Berra is only the 30th baseball player to have his picture on a stamp and the first since Lou Gehrig in 1989 to receive an issuance all his own.
In this edition of Reading Baseball, Pete Peterson explains how a recent trip to the post office to buy stamps reminded him of his disdain for Berra, who has won more World Series championships than any other player in baseball history.
Reading Baseball is a series of essays and commentaries by Richard “Pete” Peterson, author of Growing Up With Clemente and the editor of The St. Louis Baseball Reader.
