    My favorite Whitey Ford story goes something like this: The first time Whitey was brought to Yankee Stadium shortly after being signed one of the coaches brought him over to introduce him to Yogi Berra. The coach said, Eddie Ford, I’d like to introduce you to Larry Berra. Whitey went on to say that was the last time either of us were ever called Eddie or Larry in Yankee Stadium.
