Here are some quotes to live by.....

"Baseball is a red-blooded sport for red-blooded men. It's no pink tea, and mollycoddles had better stay out. It's a struggle for supremacy, a survival of the fittest." -Tyrus Raymond Cobb

"Show me a good loser, and I'll show you an idiot." -Leo Durocher

"I'd walk through hell in a gasonline suit to play baseball." -Pete Rose

"You spend a good piece of your life gripping a baseball and in the end it turns out that it was the other way around all the time." -Jim Bouton

"You can learn little from victory. You can learn everything from defeat." -Christy Matthewson

"People ask me what I do in winter when there's no baseball. I'll tell you what I do. I stare out the window and wait for spring." -Rogers Hornsby

"Baseball is ninety percent mental. The other half is physical." -Yogi Berra

"The secret of managing is to keep the guys who hate you away from the guys who are undecided." -Casey Stengel

"No matter what I talk about, I always get back to baseball." - Connie Mack

"Slump? I ain't in no slump. I just ain't hitting." - Yogi Berra

"You play to win the game!" - Herman Edwards (not a baseball guy, but great message)

"Baseball is the only field of endeavor where a man can succeed three times out of ten and be considered a good performer."  -Ted Williams

"I don't want to play golf.  When I hit a ball, I want someone else to go chase it."  -Rogers Hornsby

"Baseball is almost the only orderly thing in a very unorderly world.  If you get three strikes, even the best lawyer in the world can't get you off."  -Bill Veeck

"You can't sit on a lead and run a few plays into the line and just kill the clock.  You've got to throw the ball over the goddamn plate and give the other man his chance.  That's why baseball is the greatest game of them all."  -Earl Weaver

"I don't know why people like the home run so much.  A home run is over as soon as it starts.... The triple is the most exciting play of the game.  A triple is like meeting a woman who excites you, spending the evening talking and getting more excited, then taking her home.  It drags on and on.  You're never sure how it's going to turn out."  -George Foster, 1978

"I became a good pitcher when I stopped trying to make them miss the ball and started trying to make them hit it."  -Sandy Koufax

"What does a mama bear on the pill have in common with the World Series?  No cubs."  -Harry Caray

"The best way to catch a knuckleball is to wait until the ball stops rolling and then pick it up."  -Bob Uecker


"The highlight of my career? In '67 with St. Louis, I walked with the bases loaded to drive in the winning run in an intersquad game in spring training." - Bob Uecker

"Atta baby, baby Ray." - Robert Snowball

"Little league baseball is a very good thing because it keeps parents off the streets." - Yogi Berra

"Like a baseball game, wars are not over till they are over.  Wars don't run on a clock like football.  No previous generation was so hopelessly unrealistic that this had to be explained to them." - Thomas Sowell

"There are three things you can do in a baseball game.  You can win, you can lose, or it can rain." - Casey Stengel

"Baseball, it is said, is only a game.  True.  And the Grand Canyon is only a hole in the Arizona.  Not all holes, or games, are created equal." - George Will

"One of the beautiful things about baseball is that every once in a while you come into a situation where you want to, and where you have to, reach down and prove something." - Nolan Ryan

"Baseball is like church. Many attend few understand." - Leo Durocher

"Now you tell me, if I have a day off during the baseball season, where do you think I'll spend it? The ballpark.  I still love it.  Always have, always will." - Harry Caray

"You know that everyone thinks that in order to do South Park we must be wild, crazy, rock and roll stars. But the truth is we're just wholesome middle-American guys. We enjoy soda pop, baseball and beating up old people just as much as anybody." - Trey Parker

"I wonder why there is a designated hitter in baseball after all these years? As an experiment, it seemed like a swell enough idea, but you would think the novelty would have worn off by now and everyone would get back to playing baseball." - Jay Mohr

"Every day is a new opportunity. You can build on yesterday's success or put its failures behind and start over again. That's the way life is, with a new game every day, and that's the way baseball is." - Bob Feller 

"It's such a beautiful sport, with no politics involved, no color, no class. Only as a youngster can you play and as a pro can you win. The game has kept me young, involved and excited and for me to be up here with gems of baseball." - Jack Buck

"Baseball hasn't forgotten me. I go to a lot of old-timers games and I haven't lost a thing. I sit in the bullpen and let people throw things at me. Just like old times." - Bob Uecker 

"You can't be afraid to make errors! You can't be afraid to be naked before the crowd, because no one can ever master the game of baseball, or conquer it. You can only challenge it." - Lou Brock 

"There are only two seasons - winter and baseball." - Bill Veeck
