Yogi Berra, Dead at 90

Yogi Berra

Yogi Berra was 90. He spent almost all of his 19-year career with the New York Yankees, winning the World Series 13 times and MVP award thrice.

His famous Yogi-isms are still heard daily. Here's a selection:

  • It ain't over till it's over
  • It's like deja-vu all over again
  • It ain't the heat; it's the humility
  • Baseball is 90% mental - the other half is physical
  • I never said most of the things I said... Take it with a grin of salt
  • If you don't know where you're going, you might end up some place else
  • He hits from both sides of the plate. He's amphibious
  • You can observe a lot by watching
  • The future ain't what it used to be
  • Never answer an anonymous letter
  • When you come to a fork in the road, take it
  • I always thought that record would stand until it was broken
  • If the world was perfect, it wouldn't be
  • Always go to other people's funerals, otherwise they won't go to yours
