It happens every spring. Ron Guidry, one of the Yankees' most beloved pitchers, arrives at the airport in Tampa to pick up the Hall of Fame catcher turned national treasure, Yogi Berra. Berra slips into that old familiar #8. Guidry drives him to the ballpark. They watch the young players. They talk shop. They eat dinner together at night. They trade stories about the greats they have met along the way. And the next day they do the same thing all over again.
"Driving Mr. Yogi" is the story of baseball's odd couple and the uniquely poignant - and at times hilarious - bond they share. It began in 1999 when Berra was reunited with the Yankees after a fourteen-year hiatus, the result of being unceremoniously fired as Yankees skipper by the Boss. Finally invited back into the fold, Berra could go to spring training again, that rite of passage every former ballplayer cherishes. Guidry befriended "Mr. Yogi," who was at first a little lost among all the new faces in pinstripes. After all, Mr. Yogi had been a fixture in the clubhouse back when Guidry was pitching in the House that Ruth Built. Guidry encouraged Mr. Yogi to share his insights; he saw the importance of those young stars benefiting from the catching legend's encyclopedic knowledge of the game, just as Guidry had in his own playing days. And in Mr. Yogi, Guidry found not just an elder companion or a source of amusement - he found a lifelong friend.
At turns tender, at turns laugh-out-loud funny, and teeming with unforgettable baseball yarns that span more than fifty years, "Driving Mr. Yogi" is a universal story about the importance of wisdom being passed from one generation to the next, as well as a reminder that time is what we make of it and compassion never gets old.
