10 Best Yogi Berra Quotes

Posted by JustBats.com on Jul 9, 2018 3:46:43 PM

Lawrence Peter Berra was born on May 12th, 1925 in St. Louis, MO. Berra began playing baseball in local American Legion leagues where he learned to throw and catch. While playing in American Legion, he received the nickname “Yogi” from his friend Jack Maguire. Jack thought Berra resembled a Hindu Yogi whenever he sat around with arms and legs crossed waiting to bat or after games if they lost. It’s safe to say, the nickname stuck.

From that point on, the legend of Yogi Berra began. Yogi played 19 seasons in the MLB, he was an 18-time All-Star and won 10 World Series Championships as a player. He is considered to be one of the greatest catchers to ever play the game and was elected into Cooperstown in 1972. However, with all that being said, Yogi Berra is better known for his unique spin on the English language. The wordsmith dished out some memorable quotes throughout his career, so JustBats.com takes a look at the ten best.
