Yogi Berra was one of the most recognizable people in the sporting world.

He personified what it meant to be a great baseball player and a great person.

This past Tuesday, Mr. Berra passed away at the age of 90.

Mr. Berra won 10 World Series championships with the New York Yankees.

He also was a part of history when he caught Don Larson’s no-hitter during the 1956 World Series.

Many can say that he was Mr. Yankee because he had the heart of the champion and also played a huge role in making the Yankees the most recognizable brand in the world.

And he even transcended the sports world in a good way.

For example, ESPN’s College Football live did a segment of Mr. Berra’s famous quotes as it pertained to each college football team who were vying for a chance to make it in the College Football playoff.

And many people whether in the sporting world or outside of the sporting world had their reactions to the passing of Mr. Berra.

And each of the Major League Baseball teams had a moment of silence for Mr. Berra

One of the things that many should understand is that Mr. Berra lived his life to the fullest and stayed true to himself.

He will be truly missed by everyone.

And to close this post out, here are some of Mr. Berra’s famous quotes below that everyone including entrepreneurs can live by:

“It ain’t over till it’s over”

“If you don’t know where you are going, you might wind up someplace else.”

“When you come to a fork in the road, take it.”

“In theory there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice there is.”
