How many times to you think you’ll hear, “it ain’t over till its over” today? Probably a lot once every one realizes its Yogi Berra‘s 86th birthday.
In doing some research on the Yankees’ famous catcher, I began to notice his sociological impact. Important people generally get streets and stadiums named after them. But some get even more honors. Not only have we coined the term, “Yogi-isms,” but Yogi Berra is probably one of the most quoted men on the planet. (Apparently, there’s even an app for that.) But perhaps the best way to impact society, is to do something to make it better. In fact, in 2002, Yogi teamed up with the College Board and the National Commission on Writing to help teach kids about the importance of writing.
Why is writing so important? Because “the future ain’t what it used to be.”
