Yogi Berra Quotes 1–30 of 62 Quotes

Lawrence Peter "Yogi" Berra (May 12, 1925 – September 22, 2015) was an American baseball player, manager and member of Major League Baseball's Hall of Fame, noted for his bad-ball hitting, his ability to perform in the clutch, and his peculiar, humorous-sounding statements. Most people have heard at least some of these statements, often without knowing the source. Though very few of the quotes attributed to Berra are malapropisms, Berra's apparently unintentionally humorous statements have been mistakenly labeled as such by some writers.

Responding, in kind, to Joe Garagiola's facetious request for Berra's opinion as to who would star in his film biography, as quoted in "Yogi Battles Third and Finds It Hot" by Arthur Daley, in The Salt Lake Tribune (Monday, March 14, 1960), p. 47.

“Before the payoff game in a World Series with the Dodgers in Brooklyn, Casey Stengel said in the clubhouse, "Well, this is it. Now who do you want to pitch?" The 40 guys in the clubhouse shouted "Raschi!" so loud the Dodgers must have heard it across the way. That's what we Yankees thought of Raschi. What did Raschi have? He had a slider and a curve that wasn't too good, but what made him so rough was a fast ball that got them out. Funny thing about him was that he couldn't relieve as good as Toots Shor. The guy was built to finish what he started.”

“I dunno. This game is getting funnier and funnier. We do everything but punch 'em in the nose and here we are all tied up in the Series. We flatten 'em by scores of 16-3, 10-0 and 12-0 and we still need one more to win. How do you figure that? Don't write this, but even if they beat us tomorrow, we're the better club.”

“Sometimes I think there must be two Yogi Berras. There is the one who grew up on the Hill in St, Louis, who's been playing ball for the Yankees for fourteen years, has a beautiful wife named Carmen and three boys, Larry, Timmy, and Dale, and lives in a nice house in Montclair, N. J. That's me. Then there's the one you read about in the papers who is a kind of a comic-strip character, like Li'l Abner or Joe Palooka. [...] I don't know that Yogi at all, because he doesn't exist.”

Quote source: Chronological, by date of first occurrence (where available) or by original publication date. From Yogi: The Autobiography of a Professional Baseball Player (February 1961) by Berra with Ed Fitzgerald; reproduced in "Berra Dispels Li'l Abner Myth" by Berra and Fitzgerald, in The Boston Globe (Saturday, July 2, 1961), p. A1.

“People seem to find it hard to believe, but I'm a very serious person. It wasn't luck that I became a ballplayer. I never wanted to be anything else and I never considered anything else and I worked my tail off for it. To say that I don't have any worries or nerves is the opposite of the truth. I worry about not being able to get around on the fast ball any more, I worry about getting hurt and having to quit playing before my time. I worry about the bowling alley I own with Phil Rizzuto making money. I worry about keeping Carm happy so she won't be sorry she married me, about the kids growing up good, and about keeping out of trouble with God. I worry a lot. I'm nobody's mascot, either. Sure, I like to get along with people and I hope I've made friends, but that's different.”

“It's unbelievable that Phil had to wait so long to get in to the Hall of Fame. Maris's home run record in 1961 has become something of a curse. He wasn't just a home run hitter, he could do everything—hit in the clutch, field, throw and run.”

The origin and date of first occurrence for most Yogiisms is unknown. These quotes from his writings are listed here alphabetically. As quoted in "This Morning" by Shirley Povich, in The Washington Post (Thursday, March 17, 1949), p. 2S; and again on March 20—as "Dickey's teaching me all his experience"—by Arthur Daley in The New York Times; and on March 29—as "Dickey taught me all his experience"—by Arch Ward in The Chicago Tribune.
• The most distinctive element of this quote as it has come to be universally remembered—i.e. "learning me" rather than "teaching..."—appears to be the invention of Arthur Daley, who, more than a year later (5/22/50 NY Times), reprises Berra's 1949 statement as "Dickey's learning me his experiences."

“I knew the record would stand until it was broken.”

— Yogi Berra
