According to Dave Kaplan, the director of the Yogi Berra Museum & Learning Center, Berra died of natural causes Tuesday.

Although Berra was a vital part of Yankees teams that went to 14 World Series during his 18 year career, Chicago’s baseball teams morned the loss of one of the greatest figures the game of baseball has seen.

The Yankees announced they would honor Berra by wearing the No. 8 on their left sleeve in Wednesday night’s game against the Toronto Blue Jays, per ESPN.
