Hello everyone! Lindsay Berra here, oldest grandchild of Yogi and Carmen Berra. I’m absolutely thrilled that It Ain’t Over, a documentary about the incredible life of my Grampa Yogi, will be released in theaters by Sony Pictures Classics in the Tristate area and Los Angeles starting on May 12th, with additional cities added each week throughout May and June.

Many people know that Grampa Yogi was a Hall of Fame catcher for the New York Yankees who won three MVP awards and 10 World Series championships. A few might even know that he stepped up to the plate 656 times in 1950 and hit .322 with 28 home runs, 144 RBI and only 12 strikeouts; I like to mention that season because those numbers are just astonishing, in no small part because sluggers today strike out 12 times in a weekend. But, seemingly more people know Yogi Berra as the little guy with the big ears and the bigger personality that made him a perfect TV pitch-man, or for the “Yogisms” that made him one of the most quoted men in America.
When baseball fans today discuss who might be the greatest catcher of all-time, Grampa is often left off the list. When Yankee fans construct their pinstriped Mount Rushmore, Grampa’s name is rarely mentioned. And it’s not because he doesn’t belong in those conversations, because the stats prove otherwise. It’s my hope that It Ain’t Over will remind baseball fans of Grampa’s truly incredible career, while also pointing out that as good as he was as a ballplayer, he was an even better man.
It Ain’t Over shares Grampa’s story away from the ballfield. It is about a first-generation Italian immigrant from humble beginnings who served in the US Navy during the D-Day invasion, had a beautiful, 65-year love affair with my amazing Grammy Carmen, and lived a life of goodness, decency and humility that can be an inspiration to us all.
I hope you enjoy the show!
