Looking Back at Yogi Berra's 173 Shutouts Caught
As Yogi Berra celebrates his 86th birthday on Thursday, May 12, SABR member Walt Wilson looks back at the 173 shutouts Berra caught as a member of the New York Yankees from 1946-63.
Of Berra's 1,699 career games at catcher, 173 were shutouts.
Nineteen of Berra's shutouts, which are not listed below, were with more than one pitcher. All of his shutouts were as a member of the Yankees — he finished his playing career with the Mets in 1965. (Pitchers that had a game started but no shutouts with Berra are not shown.)
