Statement from Yogi Berra
07/13/2010 12:24 PM ET

This is a very sad day for me and Carmen and all of baseball. My sympathies go out to the Steinbrenner family.

George was The Boss, make no mistake. He built the Yankees into champions and that's something nobody can ever deny. He was a very generous, caring, passionate man. George and I had our differences, but who didn't? We became great friends over the last decade and I will miss him very much.
