Coalition of the Darkside: Happy Birthday, The Heart

Happy Birthday, The Heart

“I didn’t really say everything I said.”

“Yogi Berra had the fastest bat I ever saw. He could hit a ball late, that was already past him, and take it out of the park. The pitchers were afraid of him because he’d hit anything, so they didn’t know what to throw. Yogi had them psyched out and he wasn’t even trying to psych them out.”

� Hector Lopez

How good? Look who he blew away on his Hall Of Fame ballot.

Oh, BTW, check out the rings.

He went toe to toe with Darth Boss George and taught him a lesson about Yankee Pride.

“I didn’t realize how much I’d screwed up. It was a major screw-up. It was a stupid thing on my part,” the Yankees owner said. “It was a monumental mistake on my part. Sometimes, it takes a long time to get things right. Yogi is a highly principled man. I messed up.”

READ: I realized that if Yogi never again walked into the Stadium, I’d get strung up like Mussolini.

The full Cooperstown take on the final Pinstriped #8.

The stats.

The bear.

Yoo-hoo!

The duck.

“YOGIisms”

Yogi’s House.

“So I’m ugly. So what? I never saw anyone hit with his face.”

Asked about RhoidBoy, Yogi shook his head and said:

“… I dunno what the answer is with him; what he needs. I only know I never struck out three times in a game in my whole career until Tony Cloninger did it to me in 1965 when I made that brief comeback with the Mets. That’s when I knew it was time to quit – when I knew they could throw that fastball by me.”

Who needs Yoda?
