Yankee legend and Baseball Hall of Famer Yogi Berra has passed away at the age of 90.

Yankee legend and Baseball Hall of Famer Yogi Berra has passed away at the age of 90.

Today we mourn the loss of Yankee great, and baseball legend, Yogi Berra. Yogi is one of the most beloved Yankees of all time, and has remained one of the most recognizable figures in America, whether you’re a baseball fan or not. Berra is widely considered one of the top 5 Yankees of all time.  At the time of his retirement, he was the all time leader for home runs by a catcher, and still holds the record for RBI”s by a catcher.  Incredibly impressive when you consider his height, standing at only 5’7.

Yogi’s accomplishments include:

– 3x AL MVP
– 10x World Series champion as player
– 3x World Series champion as coach
– Only manager to lead both the Mets and Yankees to World Series appearances.
– 18x All-Star
– Baseball Hall Of Fame Inductee in 1972

While most remembered for his time as a Yankee, Yogi also played a major role in New York Mets history.  After the untimely death of manager Gil Hodges before the 1972 season, Yogi took over as manager of the team.  In the 1973 season, Yogi lead one of the most memorable Mets teams to a World Series appearance.  Despite being 9 games under .500 at the end of August, Yogi rallied the Mets to the playoffs, and the National League Pennant, before losing to the A’s in 7 games in the World Series.

On top of his on field accomplishment’s, Yogi was a member of the United States Navy during World War II, and played a significant role in the Normandy Invasion.

We here at Select-A-Ticket send our condolences to Mr. Berra’s family, friends, and his millions of fans. Below, we’ve posted a picture with some of our favorite Yogi Berra quotes, and there sure are plenty of them.

For the remainder of the season, the Yankees will wear number 8 on their jerseys in honor of Yogi berra.

Rest In Peace Yogi.

Me and my Dad at the Mets game for his birthday in June of 2011.

Me and my Dad at the Mets game for his birthday in June of 2011.

For as long as I can remember I’ve loved baseball. What many find boring and slow, I find exciting and incredibly deep. The little parts of the game, where you’re throwing an 0-2 pitch, how you attack each hitter in a lineup, defensive shifts, etc. Baseball season is my favorite time of year, even though the team that has my heart has done nothing but break it for the better part of my life.

That team would be the New York Mets. Flushing’s lovable losers. I was born after the incredible 1986 team, so the closest I’ve come to seeing a championship for my team is in 2000 when they lost to the New York Yankees in The World Series, and of course, Carlos Beltran looking at that Adam Wainwright curveball in game 7 of the 2006 NLCS. We all know where the Mets went after Beltran went down looking. The historic collapses of ‘07, and ‘08. Disappointing high payroll teams of ‘09, and ‘10. And more recently, the team’s ownership being mixed up with Bernie Madoff, and not having the finances to spend like a New York team.

Despite these bad teams throughout the years, I would always watch the majority of Mets games throughout the seasons. It didn’t matter if it was bad baseball, or good baseball, I love the sport, and the team. A team full of superstars or a team full of minor league level talent, I was locked in on them from April until October, and I always had one person that was my go to for anything Mets, my father, Joseph Pirozzi. We would watch almost every game together, from my youth until adulthood. If we missed a game together, we always discussed the outcome. If we disagreed on something, we let each other know. Sometimes our discussions got heated, as no two people can agree on things all the time. Regardless, baseball season, specifically the Mets season, was special for both of us, and it continues to be special for me, although bittersweet.

My father died suddenly in January of 2012, days before my 23rd birthday. He was, and remains, the best friend I’ve ever had, and I continue to miss him every day. At the beginning of every baseball season, I still have moments where I go to call him to talk about the team, or a divisional rival making a big move. I don’t know if that will ever change. He was as passionate, and angry about the team as I was. This is the same man that when I was in 6th grade let me stay home from school for two days after the Yankees beat the Mets in the 2000 World Series because I was so upset. I grew up going to games at Shea Stadium. We even broke off a piece of Shea in our last visit in 2008. For his last birthday with us in 2011, I took him to his first game at Citi Field, and since his passing, I go to a game every year on(or around) his birthday to celebrate his life, as he would want me to.

Unfortunately in his last years with us, the team didn’t have any seasons that stand out. From the collapses, to just plain bad teams, it was more about individual performances and moments. Among his favorite players were RA Dickey and Johan Santana. Both of those players put forth important performances in team history in the year of his passing. RA Dickey winning the 2012 Cy Young award, and Johan Santana pitching the first no hitter in Mets history.

I got to meet RA Dickey in April of 2012 as the season was just beginning and got to tell him just how big of a fan my father and I were, and told him of Dad’s passing. He took time to talk me and my sister at the autograph signing, and it meant a lot to me to see his genuine care. The Johan no hitter was wonderful to watch. As all Mets fans know, until Johan’s gem, the Mets were one of two teams to never have a pitcher throw a no hitter. This was a constant ongoing joke between me and Dad, as we both believed it would never happen. When it finally happened on June 1st, 2012, I let out a scream of joy, not just for my team, but knowing that Dad was there, in some sense, as elated as I was. Unfortunately this would be the highest points the Mets would reach since the 2006 season…

Until the 2015 season that is…

The New York Mets finally had some hope and buzz coming into the 2015 season. Behind a young pitching staff consisting of reigning Rookie of the Year Jacob deGrom, the returning Matt Harvey, rookies Steven Matz and Noah Syndergaard, and veterans Bartolo Colon and Jon Niese, Mets fans finally had something to look forward to. After a first half of inconsistency, and poor offense, the front office finally got aggressive, picking up veteran bats in Juan Uribe and Kelly Johnson, and trading for the unbelievable bat of Yoensis Cespedes, who is an MVP candidate despite the fact he’s only been with the team since August 1st. As of this writing on September 15th, the Mets are 83-61, with a 9.5 game lead over the Washington Nationals, and their magic number stands at 10.

For the first time since 2006, there will be postseason baseball in Flushing Meadows, New York. For the first time since it’s opening, there will be postseason baseball at Citi Field. And for me personally, the Mets will be playing postseason baseball without my Dad by my side to watch with me. This is truly bittersweet. The New York Mets this season have been special in so many ways. They have faced so much adversity, and come through stronger, and better. They were in one of the lowest points a franchise could be in for years, and they’ve come through on the other side of things, finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. In my own life, I feel that for the first time, since my father’s passing, I’m coming through stronger, and better. And no, it’s not because of a baseball team. It’s a number of things. Things I’ve done to better myself, a stroke of blind luck, and just the way things are falling into place. Between a new job, moving out of my childhood home, meeting an incredible woman who truly makes me happy, things are working out for the better, finally.

The Mets, are almost a microcosm of everything I’ve felt since my Dad passed away. It sounds silly to compare it to sports, but when this team was such a huge part of my relationship with my Dad, I can’t help but think that. When the Mets clinch their first playoff berth since 2006 in the next few weeks, I will be emotional, for sure. Knowing that my Dad is watching down, but not here with me to celebrate, or even go to a game with, hurts every time I think about it. I keep his David Wright jersey hanging in my closet, and have not worn it once since he passed. Come the first playoff game for the Mets this year, you can bet I’ll be wearing it even if it is two or three sizes too big. If I attend any of these playoff games, you can bet I’ll be wearing it then, too.

I don’t expect the Mets to win it all this year. Hell, I didn’t expect them to even make the playoffs, let alone win the NL East. It doesn’t matter. For the first time since my Dad passed away, I feel that same spark with the Mets that I did watching every game with him. I felt that spark watching BAD Mets teams with my father, and it was because of the bond I had with him. And since this season started, even before this magical run, I felt that spark watching this team. Something different, but familiar. It’s not about the players, the coaches, or opponents. It’s about the team. He would want me to be happy about this team, and I am. Now I’m just ready for the ride. I love and miss you Dad, and Let’s Go Mets!

Alfonso SorianoThe Yankees clobbered the Toronto Blue Jays 7-1 last night, backed by a two-home run game by Alfonso Soriano.

The home runs were numbers 399 and 400 of the slugger’s career. Soriano now has 11 home runs since joining the Yankees via trade on July 26.

This marks the 7th time a ballplayer has reached the 400 home run plateau as a New York Yankee. The list is rather impressive as Soriano joins the likes of:

  • Babe Ruth
  • Lou Gherig
  • Mickey Mantle
  • Reggie Jackson
  • Gary Sheffield
  • Alex Rodriguez

The first home run brought in 3 runs in the first inning which would prove to be enough padding to win the game. The second homer was a solo shot in the third inning.

The Yankees face an uphill climb towards the playoffs as they now stand 7.5 games behind Boston for first place in the American League East but as fans know, anything can happen in baseball. Larger leads have been lost at later times in the season than this but as Yogi Berra might say, “it is getting late early!”

The Yankees host the Red Sox in a 4 game homestand coming up which very well may decide their fate. A sweep of that series would put the Yankees right within striking distance of first place and possibly a wild card slot.

Tickets are available at for these and all remaining Yankees games this season.

Jul 2

Breaking Whitey Ford’s record which stood since 1967, New York Yankees pitcher Andy Pettitte became the franchise record holder for strikeouts when he whiffed Justin Morneau in the 5th inning. Giving him 1,958 strikeouts for his career, one more than Ford’s 1,957.

The Yankees went on to win the game by a final score of 10-4.

In a stroke of good timing, this Saturday at Yankee Stadium is Andy Pettitte Figurine Day, as the first 18,000 fans in the park will receive the free promotional item which is sure to become a collectible now that he’s etched his name in the Yankees’ record books.

So be there Saturday July 6 at Yankee Stadium for the Yankees vs Orioles and if you’re among the first 18,000 fans to enter you will receive a free Andy Pettitte Figurine.

Jun 26

As if there wasn’t enough drama surrounding Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez already, now he is in a verbal feud with team General Manager Brian Cashman.

This reminds some fans of the old days when owner George Steinbrenner would grab headlines while fighting with his own managers and players.

The trouble began when the injured Rodriguez tweeted that he’s been deemed fit to resume play.

In response, Cashman told ESPN New York that A-Rod “should keep his (expletive) mouth shut.” A rather harsh quote which leads one to believe there’s more underlying tension than perhaps any of us realize between the two sides.

A-Rod has been out of the lineup since last year’s playoffs and the Yankees have had difficulty scoring runs thus far this season. Whether he’s still got enough game to help them offensively is to be determined if and when he returns to the batting order.

ichiroIn more positive team news that real fans want to hear about, the Yankees were victorious last night as Ichiro hit a walk off home run in the bottom of the ninth inning to secure a 4-3 win and give the Yankees a record of 42-34 on the season.

The Yankees trail Boston by just 2.5 games in the AL East standings and look to inch closer tonight and tomorrow with two more games against the Rangers to closeout the homestand.

Tickets to these and all other Yankees games can be found online at

Mar 19

What at first was believed to be a wrist strain that would sideline Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira until the end of May, has turned out to be a torn tendon which may require season ending surgery for the Yankees slugger.

As it stands now, the Yankees and Teixeira are optimistic it will not need to come to that. He is expected to miss 8-10 weeks while resting the wrist and is expected to attempt a return. However should the wrist not respond to rest, the possibility of surgery is very likely.

In additional injury news, shortstop Derek Jeter has been scratched from today’s preseason game due to ankle pain. Jeter is trying to work his way back from a fractured ankle and given the news on Teixeira, the Yankees would be wise to proceed with caution on Jeter’s return, as well.

Despite these injuries, the Yankees are looking forward to opening day at Yankees Stadium.

The Yanks face none other than the dreaded Boston Red Sox, April 1st at 1:05pm to open the 2013 season.

Head over to and find tickets to opening day and all other NY Yankees games this season.

Jan 10

Word on the internet is the New York Yankees are looking to bolster the hitting from the right side of the plate and are interested in acquiring first baseman/outfielder Michael Morse from the Washington Nationals.

As reported by ESPN, Morse has been made expendable in Washington where the Nationals have a bit of a surplus as first baseman Adam LaRoche just locked up for two years and their starting outfield is set with Bryce Harper, Jayson Werth and Denard Span.

Morse is just two years removed from a 31 home run season in 2011, and is coming off an 18 home run season.

There’s still plenty of time left in the off-season but before you know it spring training will be underway and baseball will be upon us.

If you’d like to start picking out some games to attend this season, now is a great time to get an early jump on Yankees tickets. Once camps open up, fans usually get the itch and start buying the best seats.

Dec 12

In a move that is getting mixed reactions from their fans, the New York Yankees have signed former Boston Red Sox third basemen Kevin Youkilis to a one year, 12 million dollar contract.

Now everybody knows the Yankees and Red Sox are among the most bitter rivals in all of sports so to have yet another former Boston player come to the Bronx has some fans up in arms. Previously the Yankees have had Wade Boggs, Roger Clemons, Johnny Damon, oh and some fella named Babe Ruth(!), make the switch.

This season however the Yankees find themselves in need of a third baseman with the injury to Alex Rodriquez expected to keep him out of the lineup until at least the July All-Star break.

So the signing of Youkilis, while it addresses a need, it is still not going over well with some fans who have learned to dislike this player while he’s been with Boston.

As long as he produces while wearing the pinstripes, I am sure the fans will warm up to him in no time at all but should he struggle – look out! The Bleacher Creatures will be after him in full force.

Now is not a bad time to start thinking about picking up some tickets to Yankees games for next season, baseball isn’t on everyone’s mind right now and you might be surprised to find some great seats available just before the holidays.

Oct 11

Down by a run in the 9th inning, Yankees manager Joe Girardi made a bold move and chose to have Raul Ibanez pinch hit for the struggling Alex Rodriguez and Ibanez promptly tied the game with a rocket to the right field seats. The home run sent the game into extra innings where Ibanez would later come up big again to win the game in the bottom of the 12th with another home run. That, my friends, is Yankees baseball — always some drama and it just goes you show you can’t miss a playoff game!

While A Rod has been struggling mightily of late, the move to actually pinch hit for him when the team needed a run speaks volumes of how far he has fallen. Now is not the time to worry about that, the team needs wins and Girardi did what he felt was best, and was proven correct, and went with the hotter hitting Ibanez.

If A Rod can recapture his prowess at the plate will be something for fans to debate but right now the Yankees hold a 2 games to 1 lead over the Orioles with a chance to advance to the American League Championship Series with a win in Game 4 tonight at Yankee Stadium.

Tickets are still available for tonight and with the way the games have been going, it promises to be a good one. What a series this has been so far!

Oct 10

The Baltimore Orioles come to the Bronx tonight for Game 3 of the ALDS against the New York Yankees. The series is currently tied at one game apiece as the teams split in Baltimore.

Tickets have been moving at a steady pace following an immediate spike once the matchup was determined late last week.

Game 1 was a 7-2 victory for the Yankees but the final score is misleading, it was a tied game until the Yankees broke it open with 5 runs in the top of the 9th inning.

Game 2 saw the Orioles win by a final score of 3-2.

Starting for the Yankees tonight will be Hiroki Kuroda and for the Orioles it will be Miguel Gonzalez taking the mound.

Game time is 7:37 PM – there are still a limited number of tickets available so head over to and maybe find some seats for tonight’s game.
