We lost a great one today, folks.

13 World Series Championships, a stint in WWII and an induction into the Baseball Hall of Fame are just a few of the accolades that Lawrence Peter “Yogi” Berra can claim during his 90 years on this Earth.

In remembrance of one of the greatest Yankees of all time, we reminisce on our 20 favorite Yogi-isms:

1. “If you don’t know where you are going, you might wind up someplace else.”

2. “You better cut the pizza in four pieces because I’m not hungry enough to eat six.”

3. “It ain’t over till it’s over.”

4. “You wouldn’t have won if we’d beaten you.”

5. “Baseball is ninety percent mental and the other half is physical”

6. “When you come to a fork in the road, take it.”

7. “Little League baseball is a very good thing because it keeps the parents off the streets.”

8. “We made too many wrong mistakes.”

9. “Nobody goes there anymore. It’s too crowded.”

10. “You’ve got to be very careful if you don’t know where you are going, because you might not get there.”


11. “It was impossible to get a conversation going, everybody was talking too much.”

12. “A nickel ain’t worth a dime anymore.”

13. “I always thought that record would stand until it was broken.”

14. “It’s like deja-vu, all over again.”

15. When asked if the streakers on the field were males or females, Yogi replied, “I don’t know, they had bags over their heads.”

16. “The future ain’t what is used to be.”

17. “If the people don’t want to come out to the ballpark, nobody’s going to stop them.”

18. “So I’m ugly. So what? I never saw anyone hit with his face.”

19. “Half the lies they tell about me aren’t true.”

20. “I never said most of the things I said.”
