The lovable, quotable Yogi Berra was a guest on "Mike and the Mad Dog" on June 16, 2003.

The Yankees great talked about catching Don Larsen’s perfect game, hitting two homers in Game 7 of the 1956 World Series, playing alongside fellow legends Joe DiMaggio and Mickey Mantle and more.

He also discussed his museum in Little Falls, New Jersey, adding that a broadcast center for college students was being built there at the time.

“Maybe we could use you guys to come over and teach them,” Berra told Mike Francesa and Chris “Mad Dog” Russo.

“We’re the wrong guys to do that, Yogi!” Mad Dog joked.

“It’s like you teaching hitting to somebody, OK?” Francesa added. “Don’t learn to do it like me. You can’t take the pitch off the ground and hit it into the right-field seats.”
