Top 10 Yogi-isms

On Sept. 22, the world of baseball lost a legend in Yogi Berra. Berra was a catcher for the New York Yankees from 1946-1963. He was also a manager for the Yankees, Mets and bench coach for the Astros until his retirement in 1992. Berra won 10 World Series, 3-AL MVPs, was an 18 time All-Star, is regarded as one of the greatest catchers of all time, and was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1972. However, Yogi was and still is best known today for his “Yogi-isms.”

Here are the top 10 Yogi-isms:
10. “I never said most of the things I said.”
9. “Slump? I ain’t in no slump…I just ain’t hitting.”
8. “If I didn’t make it in baseball, I won’t have made it workin’. I didn’t like to work.”
7. “So I’m ugly. I never saw anyone hit with his face.”
6. “We have deep depth.”
5. “I’m a lucky guy and I’m happy to be with the Yankees.”
4. “It was impossible to get a conversation going, everybody was talking too much.”
3. “You can observe a lot by just watching.”
2. “Baseball is 90 percent mental and the other half is physical.”
1. “It ain’t over till it’s over.”

Berra will be greatly missed.
