September 23, 2015[caption id="attachment_1051" align="aligncenter" width="474"] Smack Apparel offers heartfelt condolences to the family of the late Yogi Berra and Yankees fans everywhere. Everybody loved Yogi, and we always will.[/caption] Yogi Berra is gone. Baseball's most lovable quote master died overnight at age 90. We at Smack Apparel have always had a special place in our hearts for the Yankees Hall of Famer. We created our tribute shirt to Yogi out of love for his creativity and originality. You'll hear and read a lot of stories today about Yogi. That's what baseball is about, ultimately -- story telling. It's why the game remains such an important and vital part of our national culture. Because who doesn't love a good story? And who was a better subject than Yogi? Here's one told almost a quarter-century ago by then-Reds Manager Lou Piniella during a warm spring training morning in Plant City. Yogi and Lou and others were out for dinner in the city. They went to a great pizza joint they all knew and enjoyed. When the waiter came to take their order, Yogi turned to him and asked, "How many slices are in a large pie?" "We can slice it any way you like," the waiter said. "Four, six, eight. It's up to you." Yogi nodded and thought about it for a second. "You better make it four," he said. "I'm not that hungry." RIP, No. 8. You were one of the greats, and you will never be forgotten.
