"They threw away the mold in regards to Yogi. He was one of a kind. He loved the game. As a manager, he never tried to complicate things. He let his players play. He respected what you did on the field. He was an utter delight to be around."
"He was a true gentleman. As a manager he was very, very reassuring. When things were bad, he always stayed positive."
"He did so much good for so many people in this world. Every time I think of Yogi I have a smile on my face. That's the effect he had on people."
"Yogi was a fun-loving guy who never had an enemy in the world. I dressed next to him for 10 years when I was with the Mets. He was on one side and Joe Torre was on the other. He was a special man."
