    I wonder if there’s any correlation; psychologically and biologically and what not, between Yogi’s great sayings and his ability to hit for power and strike out so few times. There’s a great list on baseball reference of more home runs than strikeouts in a season. Yogi is on the list a few times. But I guess literary things can’t be measured. http://www.baseball-reference.com/blog/archives/10091

    • I find the tag at the bottom of that table very interesting: “Notice that since 1956, it’s only been done twice–by George Brett in 1980 and Barry Bonds in 2004.”

        Thanks for pointing that out. I missed it. Wow, that raises up George Brett even higher in my estimation and he was already in the stratosphere.
