Something Cool I Have

Blog|更新日:2018年10月14日/日曜日

Growing up I used to avidly collect baseball cards. I still have almost every single card I collected as a boy at my parents’ house in American, and I still enjoy looking at and organizing them when I visit their house in the U.S. Although I know that someday I am going to have to sell them, I am just not quite ready to do that just yet, but one thing I know I will never sell are the four very special signed baseballs that I own which were all given to me when I used to collect those cards. One of the balls I have was signed by Yogi Berra, a great baseball player who is often considered one of the top three catchers in baseball history by professional sports writers, and is always in the group of the top five. He is also widely considered to be one of the top 100 players of all time, played in 14 World Series teams, and whose team won an unbelievable ten times! That is more than any other player in Major League History, and he played in 75 total World Series games, again, more than any other player. He appeared in another eight World Series, too, but those times as either a manager or a coach. In total, he was in 22 total World Series play-offs, 13 times on the winning side! As a player, he was also the American League MVP three times during his career, and was in the top two in the run off for that award two other times. He had many other highly impressive baseball stats, but rather than sharing those I wanted to mention something else he is possibly even more famous for these days, and that is lots of the silly statements and quotes that are attributed to him. Even people that don’t care for baseball very much often enjoy reading his quotes because many of his quips are very funny and have become quite famous. Here are just a few of his most popular:

 

  • “90 percent of baseball is mental; the other half is physical.”
  • “When you come to a fork in the road, take it.”
  • “You can observe a lot by watching.”
  • “Always go to other people’s funerals; otherwise they won’t go to yours.”
  • “You better cut the pizza in four pieces because I’m not hungry enough to eat six.”
  • “If you can’t imitate him, don’t copy him.”
  • “If you don’t know where you are going, you’ll end up someplace else.”
  • “You wouldn’t have won if we’d beaten you.”

And there are many, many, many more.

Yogi Berra is one of the most beloved people to have ever played the game of baseball and a larger than life man. I am very proud to have something that he signed and held just a few moments of his monumental life and will forever be happy that my parents gave it to me as a boy.

What do you have that means a lot to you? If you see me, please let me know. I would love to chat with you!
