If people don't want to come to the ballpark, how are you going to stop them?
— Yogi Berra
If I didn't make it in baseball, I won't have made it workin'. I didn't like to work.
I liked St. Louis, when they were in the American League, because that was going home. I had all my family and friends there.
Love is the most important thing in the world, but baseball is pretty good, too.
I tell the kids, somebody's gotta win, somebody's gotta lose. Just don't fight about it. Just try to get better.
I don't mean to be funny.
I enjoy now doing what I do... playing golf, relaxing a little, enjoying life.
I usually take a two-hour nap from one to four.
If you get a guy that can play a couple positions, it helps you out a real lot.
If the world were perfect, it wouldn't be.
We have deep depth.
Congratulations. I knew the record would stand until it was broken.
The towels were so thick there I could hardly close my suitcase.
It gets late early out there.
I never blame myself when I'm not hitting. I just blame the bat and if it keeps up, I change bats. After all, if I know it isn't my fault that I'm not hitting, how can I get mad at myself?
I always thought that record would stand until it was broken.
So I'm ugly. So what? I never saw anyone hit with his face.
I liked George Weiss when he was with the Yankees. He loved the Old Timers' Day. He loved it. And he invited all these people to come, all these players to come.
You don't have to swing hard to hit a home run. If you got the timing, it'll go.
Mickey Mantle was a very good golfer, but we weren't allowed to play golf during the season; only at spring training.
You should always go to other people's funerals; otherwise, they won't come to yours.
A lot of guys go, 'Hey, Yog, say a Yogi-ism.' I tell 'em, 'I don't know any.' They want me to make one up. I don't make 'em up. I don't even know when I say it. They're the truth. And it is the truth. I don't know.
It's fun; baseball's fun.
I didn't know much about golf growing up.
If the people don't want to come out to the ballpark, nobody's going to stop them.
I guess I've got a smart wife.
It's pretty far, but it doesn't seem like it.
Always go to other people's funerals, otherwise they won't come to yours.
You better cut the pizza in four pieces because I'm not hungry enough to eat six.
Little League baseball is a very good thing because it keeps the parents off the streets.
It ain't the heat, it's the humility.
I'm not going to buy my kids an encyclopedia. Let them walk to school like I did.
He hits from both sides of the plate. He's amphibious.
How can you think and hit at the same time?
I never figured I'd go into the Hall of Fame. A kid from the Hill.
I'm lucky. Usually you're dead to get your own museum, but I'm still alive to see mine.
I always got nervous the nights we played in the World Series. First pitch, I was nervous. Then after that, forget it; I'd start playing.
I never said half the things I said.
I don't blame the players today for the money. I blame the owners. They started it. They wanna give it to 'em? More power to 'em.
I'm glad I was in the Navy.
Almost every Monday I have a charity thing. I like that. I do.
You can observe a lot by watching.
I don't like seeing myself on television. I don't like it.
Pair up in threes.
Slump? I ain't in no slump... I just ain't hitting.
In theory there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice there is.
I think Little League is wonderful. It keeps the kids out of the house.
I never said most of the things I said.
I'm a lucky guy and I'm happy to be with the Yankees. And I want to thank everyone for making this night necessary.
All pitchers are liars or crybabies.
