7. Yogi Berra

Height And Sport: 5'7", Baseball
Accolades: 1972 BBWAA Hall of Fame Inductee, 3x AL MVP, 18x All Star, 13x World Series Champion, MLB All Century Team

Before he could be famous for his ridiculous sayings and Aflac commercials, Yogi Berra was a Hall-of-Fame catcher for the New York Yankees. The guy just flat out knew how to win; as a player, he won 10 World Series titles with the Yankees, including five in a row from 1949 to 1953.His imprint on history is everywhere, from being the catcher for the only perfect game in World Series history to coining the phrase "It ain't over 'til it's over." And if you ever doubted whether this guy was tough, consider this: before joining the Yankees (where he once caught an entire seven hour, 22-inning game), he was a gunner's mate for the Navy in the D-Day invasion.
