It Ain't Over

Lawrence Peter “Yogi” Berra is one of baseball’s greatest.

He amassed ten World Series rings, three MVP awards, and 18 All-Star Game appearances. He caught the only perfect game in World Series history. Yet for many, his deserved stature was overshadowed by his unique personality, TV commercial appearances, and unforgettable “Yogi-isms,” initially head-scratching philosophical nuggets that make a lot more sense the more you think about them.

In telling the whole story, It Ain’t Over gives Berra his due in following the life of a savvy, commanding, bad-ball hitting catcher with a squat frame, but also a D-Day veteran, loving husband and father and, yes, product endorser and originator (mostly) of his own brand of proverbs now ingrained into everyday life.

Granddaughter Lindsay Berra tells his story along with his sons, former Yankee teammates, players he managed, sports writers, broadcasters, and admirers (such as Billy Crystal), plus photos and footage from on and off the diamond. Berra famously said, “I’d be pretty dumb if I started being something I’m not,” and It Ain’t Over lovingly makes clear he stayed true to himself for the benefit of baseball—and everyone else.

"It Ain’t Over is a joyful celebration of the life of Yogi Berra, a portrait of the incredible love he shared with his wife and family, and a tribute to the game of baseball."
Mark Johnson, Awards Daily
"If you’re already a Berra fan and a Yankees devotee, just know that this Red Sox fan found the documentary moving, so be sure to pack some tissues."
Dan Fienberg, The Hollywood Reporter
