It Ain't Over
USA, Feature Documentary, 2022, 98 min
Lawrence Peter “Yogi” Berra is one of baseball’s greatest. He amassed 10 World Series rings, 3 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 him simply being himself. He was recognized more for 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. It Ain’t Over follows the life of a savvy, commanding, bad ball-hitting catcher, but also a D-Day veteran, loving husband and father. Granddaughter Lindsay Berra tells his story, along with his sons, former Yankee teammates, players he managed, writers, broadcasters, and admirers (such as Billy Crystal). 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 who he was for the benefit of baseball and everyone else.

Yogi Berra lived the kind of life we wish our heroes to have: filled with love, respect, and integrity. This is a film fans can embrace and younger generations can learn from. I loved it. Leonard Maltin
