Celebrating the Life and Words of Yogi Berra

Hall of Fame catcher Yogi Berra passed away yesterday, exactly 69 years after he made his Major League debut. His contributions to the game have few rivals. Perhaps lesser known to the wider public are his contributions to our nation – a member of the Navy, Yogi was part of the D-Day invasion on Omaha Beach.

But perhaps what he is best known for are his “Yogi-isms”, statements that he made seriously that became part of popular culture, and also made people laugh. 

The CLS Strategies team is filled with die hard Yankee fans, so in his memory, we wanted to share with you some of our favorite quotes from a Yankee legend that we will miss.

  • “When you come to a fork in the road, take it.”
  • “It's deja vu all over again.”
  • “Ninety percent of this game is half mental.”
  • “No one goes there anymore. It's too crowded.”
  • “Always go to other people’s funerals. Otherwise they won’t go to yours.”
  • “I really didn’t say everything I said.”

Yogi also famously once said, “It ain’t over till it’s over.” While sadly Yogi has passed on, the memory of his game and words will never be over.
