BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Baseball fans everywhere will remember a player known as much for what he said as how he played.
Yogi Berra died Tuesday night of natural causes in New Jersey, according to CBS News. He was 90.
Berra played 17 seasons for the New York Yankees and one for the Mets, continuing as a coach later in his career. He played on 14 World Series teams with the Yankees.
Berra was famous for malaprops during news conferences and other talks, saying things like “It ain’t over ’til it’s over,” “nobody comes here anymore, it’s too crowded,” and “when you see a fork in the road, take it.”
On Twitter, the Yankees stated, “We are deeply saddened by the loss of a Yankees legend and American hero, Yogi Berra.”
