Yogi's most memorable sayings

In addition to his stellar play on the field, Yogi Berra, the legendary Yankee who passed away Tuesday at the age of 90, was known for his memorable quips. His remarks helped sculpt his image, even though he sometimes denied speaking some of the phrases attributed to him, once saying, "I really didn't say everything I said."

As we remember Yogi, here is a sampling of some of his most famous sayings.

• "It ain't over 'til it's over."

• About a St. Louis restaurant: "No one goes there anymore. It's too crowded."

• About the effect of the sun in left field in the old Yankee Stadium during late-season games: "It gets late early out there."
