    Yogi Berra died Tuesday night, and I’m reminded of my good friend who backed up Berra in the Bronx.

    Charlie Silvera didn’t play much — 482 at-bats in 10 years - and opponents used to kid him that he was Yogi’s caddy. As Charlie once told me at his Millbrae home, “I told them, ‘Yogi tipped me more than you make.’ ”

    Silvera loved Yogi. Everyone loved Yogi. How could anyone not love the short man with the big bat, known for his World Series titles and turning phrases in all kinds of wacky directions?

    More than anything, more than being celebrated in the pop culture for his Yogi-isms - “Baseball is 90 percent mental. The other half is physical” - he was a great overall ballplayer, a wonderful tactician of a catcher, a backbone of the greatest dynasty in baseball history, the Yankees winning five straight World Series through 1953 and 10 during his mighty reign in New York.
