Yogi Berra the Funny Man of Baseball
# Yogi’s been chided for years for his short, pudgy stature and long snoz. As a young boy someone asked him how he liked school. ”Closed”, Berra replied.
# When honored by fans his rookie season, he said, ”I want to thank everyone for making this night necessary.”
# He once received a note left by his wife telling him she wouldn’t be home after the game because she was going to see Dr. Zhivago. Yogi wondered out loud, ”What’s wrong now.”
# Once presented a check for $25 for an interview with an announcer he said, ”You’ve known me all these years and you can’t spell my name.” The check was made out to the ”Bearer.”
