Yogi Berra is dead of natural causes at the age of 90. With ten World Series rings, he was the first Mr. October. And with dozens of confusingly wise quotes, he was the Philosopher Clown of Baseball.

Rest in peace, Yogi. You are already missed.

Not just a Yankee legend, a MLB Icon as well
"When you come to a fork in the road, take it."
I hope you took it and found your way back to Carmen.
Rest in peace, Yogi.

A true character, class act, and a gentleman.
And his accomplishments on the diamond weren't too shabby.

RIP Yogi.

Some of the more widely quoted philosophy of Yogi Berra, the New York Yankees Hall of Fame catcher who died Tuesday at age 90:


On his approach to at-bats: "You can't think and hit at the same time."

On selecting a restaurant: "Nobody goes there anymore. It's too crowded."

On economics: "A nickel ain't worth a dime anymore."

On the 1973 Mets: "We were overwhelming underdogs."

On how events sometimes seem to repeat themselves "It's deja vu all over again!"

On baseball attendance: "If people don't come to the ballpark, how are you gonna stop them?"

On a slipping batting average: "Slump? I ain't in no slump. ... I just ain't hitting."

On travel directions: "When you come to a fork in the road take it."

On pregame rest: "I usually take a two-hour nap from 1 to 4."

On battling the shadows in left field at Yankee Stadium: "It gets late early out there."

On fan mail: "Never answer an anonymous letter."

On being told he looked cool: "You don't look so hot yourself."

On being asked what time it was: "You mean now?"

On being given a day in his honor: "Thank you for making this day necessary."

On a spring training drill: "Pair off in threes."

On his approach to playing baseball: "Baseball is 90 percent mental. The other half is physical."

On death: "Always go to other people's funerals. Otherwise they won't go to yours."

On learning: "You can observe a lot by watching."

On his team's diminishing pennant chances: "It ain't over 'till it's over."

On the fractured syntax attributed to him: "I really didn't say everything I said."
