Yogi's famous quote:
"Baseball is ninety percent..."
First coined by Wohlford!
It's one of baseball's greatest Yogi-isms: “Baseball is ninety percent mental, and the other half is physical”. The truth of the matter is, that phrase is not a Yogi original! Jim Wohford is actually credited with the first recorded instance of the phrase "Ninety per cent of this game is half mental." in 1974. Yogi may have put his own unique spin on it, but Wohlford is the one that got paid $50 by Reader's Digest for its Notable Quotables!
