No one is more of a winner than Yogi Berra who has 10 World Series wins under his belt, a record that may never be broken.

The Yogi Berra Museum & Learning Center in New Jersey will unveil a statue of the Yankee Hall of Fame legend.

"This sculpture of Yogi will be a wonderful fixture for our new Museum & Learning Center," museum director Dave Kaplan said in a statement. "It's really an iconic rendition of a true American icon. Most importantly it will be here for future generations to admire, and hopefully inspire them to live an exemplary life."

Best of all, Yogi will speak at the ceremony.
