Baseball Legend Yogi Berra Has Died
Baseball legend Yogi Berra is dead at the age of 90. He's the Hall of Fame catcher for the Yankees who won ten championships with them in the 1940s, '50s, and '60s.
He'd been sick for a while and died of natural causes at his home in New Jersey. He played with other famous players like Mickey Mantle and Joe DiMaggio, and also coached or managed the Yankees, Mets, and Houston Astros. He also led both the Yankees and the Mets to pennants after he stopped playing.
People probably know him even better for the folksy sayings he made famous. Here are some of our favorites:
- "It's never over 'til it's over."
- "When you come to a fork in the road, take it."
- "If the world were perfect, it wouldn't be."
- "It's déjà vu all over again."
- "You should always go to other people’s funerals. Otherwise, they won't come to yours."
- "Nobody goes there anymore. It's too crowded."
