For many years I used to say to Cubs fans that Tom Hanks was not correct. Cubs are living proof there is crying in baseball. I know, I was born a Cubs fan.

I read recently that Yogi did not say that first, it is a quote from a movie but I can't find the name of the movie. You know when the truth becomes a legend print the legend.

It is correct. They were saying it 100 years before Yogi did. And Yogi claims he never said it.
