BASKING RIDGE, NJ- Baseball legend Yogi Berra died late Tuesday night at age 90.
Yogi had a career that transcended baseball. He was a Hall of Famer, all-time Yankees legend, three-time Most Valuable Player, originator of the Yogi-ism and a WWII vet.
Yogi was the only player in baseball to have won 10 World Championships. He will also be long remembered for sayings like:
- "No-one goes there anymore, its too crowded."
- "It’s like deja-vu all over again."
- "It ain’t over till it’s over."
- "You should always go to other people's funerals, otherwise, they won't come to yours."
A statement released by the Berra Museum in Little Falls, NJ about the Yankee Great: “His passing has created a void that cannot be filled, even by the myriad anecdotes -- some accurate, others exaggerated -- about him and the dozens of records he established.”
