    The Hall of Famer passed away at the age of 90 on Tuesday evening, the Yogi Berra Museum announced. He undoubtedly would be reminding people of what he once said: "You should always go to other people's funerals, otherwise, they won't come to yours."

    Although listed at 5-7, 185 in his playing days, Berra stood tall among the game's elite. In 1999 he was one of 100 players selected to Major League Baseball's All-Century team.

    Berra was a free swinger who loved to chase pitches way out of the strike zone. "If I can hit it, it's a good pitch," he said of a career that spanned 18 seasons with the Yankees.

    He batted .285 with 358 home runs and 1,430 runs batted in a career that spanned 18 seasons with the Yankees and finished with a short stint with the New York Mets in 1965.

  • One of the most spirited guys to ever play the game. Hands down my favorite Yankee, ever. Funny as hell.

    "Always go to other people's funerals, otherwise they won't come to yours!"
    "It gets late early out there"
    "You can't think and hit at the same time"

    It ain't over 'til it's over.

    RIP, Yogi.

  • "When you come to a fork in the road, take it."

    "Nobody goes to that restaurant anymore. It's too crowded."

    People might not be aware that Yogi was part of the D-Day invasion.
