Andy Phillips Remembers Yogi Berra on The Chris Stewart Show
Current Alabama Baseball assistant coach Andy Phillips used to play for the New York Yankees, and like most who were ever associated with the Yankee organization, he was fortunate enough to get to know the late Yogi Berra and have his own Yogi Berra experience.
Phillips, now the hitting coach for the Crimson Tide baseball team, was drafted by the New York Yankees in the seventh round of the 1999 MLB Draft, and hit a homerun during his first at-bat of his first appearance in the big leagues on September 14, 2004.
During his time with the Yankees, he cherished his time in New York, being around some of the greatest legends in the game. Among those greats was the one and only Yogi Berra.
"He had an incredible way about him... the thing that was most impressive to me was he knew everyone. It didn't matter if it was in spring training when you came in, if you were a rookie a no-name, he got to know you."
