Yogi could hit anybody's fast ball. And I mean anybody's. Nobody threw too hard for him. And he was the most positive person I've ever met.

I used to tease Yogi Berra about the 1955 World Series when I would see him at card shows. I always would say Jackie was clearly safe & Yogi would say he was out and we would laugh about it. I'll miss him - he was a good friend, pinstripes and all.

I don't know much about sports, but Yogi Berra was always my favorite baseball player because he was a comedic genius.

Yogi Berra was an American original - a Hall of Famer, jovial prophet, & a humble veteran. We'll miss you, Yogi, but your legacy ain't over.

Though born in a hard-scrabble St. Louis neighborhood, Yogi Berra was NY all the way: plain spoken, funny, hard working & a real team player
