Event Details

Description

But no one knew him like his family did. My Dad, Yogi is Dale Berra's chronicle of the unshakeable bond with his father and an intimate portrait providing a unique perspective on one of the great sports figures of the 20th Century. Throughout Dale's youth, he had a firsthand look at the Major Leagues alongside his dad and Berra's lifelong family friends Joe DiMaggio, Mickey Mantle, and Whitey Ford. It's no coincidence that all three Berra sons became professional athletes. Dale came up with the Pittsburgh Pirates, emerging as one of baseball's most talented young players until he was implicated in a major cocaine scandal, cutting short his promising career. He writes candidly about his drug problem and of the support he received from Yogi, who eventually staged the intervention that would save Dale's life.
