It happens every spring. Yankees pitching great Ron Guidry arrives at the airport to pick up Hall of Fame catcher and national treasure Yogi Berra. Guidry drives him to the ballpark. They watch young players. They talk shop. They eat dinner together. They tease each other. And as every former ballplayer knows, in that routine there emerges a certain magic. Driving Mr. Yogi is the story of how a unique friendship between a pitcher and a catcher is renewed every year.

I truly loved this book as a long time Yankee fan and a lover of baseball. Great stories, a dash of humor and insights of two of the games great icons.

This book is a must for any Yankee fan. However, its message of respecting the gifts, insights and life experiences of those before you should not be overlooked. Yogi Berra proves once again what a charming personality he is. Coupled with his (at first, reluctantly) driver and fellow Yankee Ron Guidry, a lasting friendship is forged over their spring training trips to Yankee camp. Along the way, we get to learn about an aging Yogi and his need to feel wanted and needed in his twilight years. There is so much in this book to recommend for the faithful reader. Please read it!
