Baseball Legend, Yogi Berra Dies at 90

Yogi Berra, one of the greatest catchers the game has ever seen, passed away Tuesday evening at the age of 90.

Berra had an illustrious nineteen-year career (mostly with the New York Yankees) and won the MVP award three times and was also a 13-time World Series champion. His back number, 8, was also retired by the Yankee organization following his retirement. He was also inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1972. His death was announced by the Yankees organization and by the Yogi Berra Museum and Learning Center Museum in Little Falls, N.J.

Yogi Berra played a total of 2120 games and logged 2150 hits, 358 home runs, 1430 RBIs, and had a career batting average of .285.

He was also known for his wit, philosophy, and his quotes known as Yogi-isms. Here are some of his greatest quotes, starting with

@nicolejb That's also my favorite quote from Yogi as well. That might actually be my all time favorite quote...It also sums up the game and philosophy of baseball perfectly.

He was such a class act you know? The only modern day player that even comes close is Jeter, and when he retired it was a huge huge deal, and rightfully so. @mchlyang

@TessStevens I was thinking the same thing...Hopefully the younger players in the league right now can look up to Yogi and Jeter and follow their footsteps.
