Discussion - Jack Krasula, Host of WJR’s “Anything is Possible”
                            A Most Unique Human Being-Lawrence “Yogi” Berra

Jack Krasula, host of WJR’s “Anything is Possible” will discuss one of baseball’s most lovable and oft-quoted characters-Yogi Berra.

 

Jack is a world-class baseball fan. In his private museum, he has-without doubt-the finest collection of baseball memorabilia in the country. For example, he has the autographs of all the inductees into the National Baseball Hall of fame and all of the major league players who have hit 500 home runs.   


Jack has attended virtually every induction ceremony into the Baseball Hall of Fame for the last 20 years. During that time he developed a close friendship with Yogi that allows him to give us a keen insight into and portrayal of the life of the beloved Lawrence “Yogi” Berra.
