#20. Baseball players need strength but also the ability to make fast-paced, explosive movements, so their training is all about strengthening the tendons around the bone and the joint so you don't tear the muscles from the bones.

Or to take off quickly to steal a base. #Quote by Chadwick Boseman

Baseball Player quotes by Rachel Hawthorne
#28. What about the backyard stuff?" he asked.
"What about it?"
"Is it okay if I use it, too?"
"Oh, sure. The equipment is in a metal shed in the back. Just help yourself. It's not locked or anything. And if you want company, just let me know. I'd be happy to play with you."
Did I just say that? I did not just say that. Like we were six years old and heading for a sandbox.
He was grinning again, like he thought it was funny or stupid or I was having a Tiffany moment.
"I didn't mean play with you exactly," I said. "I meant…you know, keep you company so you don't feel awkward…you know, like I exercised with you."
"I'll be okay alone in the backyard." He stepped off the treadmill. "I'm going to go shower."
He waited a heartbeat, like he expected me to say I'd be happy to keep him company in the shower, too.
Fortunately, my brain finally kicked in, and I kept my mouth shut.
I watched him walk out of the room. I thought I'd known everything that would be involved in having a baseball player living with us for the summer.
I was discovering that I didn't have a clue. #Quote by Rachel Hawthorne

#34. When I was a kid I would much rather have been a good baseball player or a hit with the girls, but I couldn't play ball. I couldn't dance. Luckily, the girls didn't want me. Not much I could do about that. So I started to draw and to write By the time I got to where I was attracting girls, I was already into work, and it was more important to me. Not that I wouldn't rather make love, but the work has become a habit. #Quote by Shel Silverstein
Baseball Player quotes by Luis Tiant
#35. Normal relations, never. We should never forget what has happened to the people in Cuba for forty years. All baseball cares about is getting players out of Cuba.

Baseball Player quotes by Mark Driscoll
#37. The Gospel of Mark revealed a Jesus who was anti-thetical to the "Gentle Jesus, meek and mild" sung about in Wesley's famous hymn.

#38. My kid was a great baseball player. I thought I had it made. Front-row seats at Yankee Stadium. Then he turned sixteen and wanted to be a rapper. #Quote by James Caan

I discovered, in rapid succession, books, girls, alcohol and tobacco, and I've never turned back. Those are the four things I'm most interested in. #Quote by Paul Auster

#47. Baseball was rooted not just in the past but in the culture of the country; it was celebrated in the nation's literature and songs.

It was not so much the national sport as the binding national myth. #Quote by David Halberstam

Baseball Player quotes by Timothy B. Shutt
#63. So it's a strife here, in a way, between position - between the CEO and the top salesman; between the principal and the best teacher; between Miller Huggins, the manager, and Babe Ruth, the best baseball player who ever lived; between the person who can really do it, and the person who is in charge. Those are incommensurable excellences, and then and now they often come into conflict. So here - that is the rage within the rage, the conflict within the conflict, that Homer is interested in chronicling. #Quote by Timothy B. Shutt

Baseball Player quotes by Pamela Taeuffer
#77. I always prayed the same way at night: "Now I lay me down to sleep. I pray the Lord my soul to keep. If I die before I wake, I pray the Lord my soul to take. Please bless my mother, father, sister, everyone in the word, and me. And please make my father quit drinking."
As a child growing up in a family battling alcoholism, this is what I know: Something bad is coming; it always does. I can't ask for help; I'm too ashamed. I can't talk about our secrets; no one understands. I can't trust anyone; they always leave.
Questions bounced off my self-constructed wall of values
a barricade I'd made from the fears I'd pushed into my darkness.
How could Ryan, a professional baseball player, really resist all those women? How could I really trust Jerry, my childhood friend? I'd barely awakened to sex and already boys were the seventh wonder of the world. Did anyone really trust another person? I needed proof. That proof hadn't revealed itself ... yet. #Quote by Pamela Taeuffer

#78. I wanted to be a professional baseball player. #Quote by Balthazar Getty

Baseball Player quotes by Irving Wallace
#80. For the middle majority of us all, knowledge of Negroes firsthand is probably limited - limited to the colored cleaning woman, who comes twice a week, limited to the colored baseball player who saves or loses a home game, limited to the garage mechanic, or dime-store clerk, or blues singer seen and heard on a Saturday night. To this white majority, the black man is as unknown as once was the heart of the Dark Continent of Africa. #Quote by Irving Wallace
Baseball Player quotes by Rafael Soriano
#81. All the time, I think positive things about baseball. That's always how you do it. I'm a baseball player-that's all I want to do, all the time, be better and better. #Quote by Rafael Soriano
Baseball Player quotes by Mickey Mantle
#82. After a play in the field Casey would turn (to the players on the bench) and say 'What did he do wrong?' or 'You're better than that guy.' Either way, he'd keep them from getting stale. #Quote by Mickey Mantle
Baseball Player quotes by Albert Pujols
#83. He means as much as Roberto Clemente does to Latin people. Thank God I had the opportunity to know him. I wish my kids had the opportunity to be around him, because that's how I want my kids to live their lives. I want them to be like Stan Musial. Not the baseball player. The person. That's the respect I have for that man. #Quote by Albert Pujols
Baseball Player quotes by Thomas Boswell

#89. In an unhealthy way, I found a lot of validity in having always been a very good athlete, a very good baseball player, and I've since grown out of that place into a different perspective and learned how to live differently, thankfully, where baseball is certainly something that's very important to me. It's not who I am, though. It's just what I do. #Quote by R.A. Dickey
Baseball Player quotes by George Carlin
#90. If two baseball players from the same hometown, on different teams, receive the same uniform number, it is not ironic. It is a coincidence. If Barry Bonds attains lifetime statistics identical to his father's, it will not be ironic. It will be a coincidence. #Quote by George Carlin
Baseball Player quotes by Cindy Crawford
#91. Models are like baseball players. We make a lot of money quickly, but all of a sudden we're 30 years old, we don't have a college education, we're qualified for nothing, and we're used to a very nice lifestyle. The best thing is to marry a movie star. #Quote by Cindy Crawford
Baseball Player quotes by Ned Yost
#92. Rolen's the perfect baseball player. It's his tenacity, his preparation, the way he plays. He tries to do everything fundamentally sound. And he puts the team team first-there's no fanfare with him. #Quote by Ned Yost

Baseball Player quotes by Branch Rickey
#96. It (a baseball box score) doesn't tell how big you are, what church you attend, what color you are, or how your father voted in the last election. It just tells what kind of baseball player you were on that particular day. #Quote by Branch Rickey
Baseball Player quotes by Ryan Guzman
#97. That's what I love about acting. There's never a set role. You can be a firefighter, you can be a baseball player, you can be whatever you want in the acting world. I think I've found my calling. #Quote by Ryan Guzman
Baseball Player quotes by Ryne Sandberg
#98. I was a baseball player at North Central High School in Spokane, Washington even though I was all-city in basketball, even when I signed a letter of intent to play quarterback at Washington State. #Quote by Ryne Sandberg
Baseball Player quotes by Ben Gibbard
#99. I'm not like a 90-mph fastball kind of guy, but I can hit 70 on radar gun. I hit 70 one time on a radar guy at one of those pitch-and-throw kind of things. I have a pretty good arm for somebody who's not a baseball player. #Quote by Ben Gibbard
Baseball Player quotes by John McGraw

#101. This is a game to be savored, not gulped. There's time to discuss everything between pitches or between innings. #Quote by Bill Veeck
Baseball Player quotes by Gary Mack
#102. The pattern of your breathing affects the pattern of your performance. When you are under stress, deep breathing helps bring your mind and body back into the present.Over the years I have handed out thousands of little stickers to athletes that read 'Breathe and Focus.' A baseball player will place the bright orange circle on the shoulder of his uniform or underneath the bill of his cap, or on the barrel of his bat. A hockey player might affix it to his stick. Firefighters I have worked with place the stickers on their self-contained breathing apparatus. The stickers serve as a reminder. Whenever they feel themselves growing anxious, breathe in energy. Breathe out negativity. Breathe in relaxation. Breathe out stress. #Quote by Gary Mack
Baseball Player quotes by Tiger Woods
#103. If you're a baseball player and you're on the mound, you don't ever want to look up in the stands if somebody is yelling at you because they know they've got you. You just keep your head down, keep moving along. Of course it annoys you at the time, but you don't ever show that it does annoy you; just go ahead and move on and keep playing. If it does distract you, back off. #Quote by Tiger Woods
Baseball Player quotes by David Murphy
#104. My goal on Earth is not to win a World Series or be the best baseball player who ever lived. That simply is not up to me because I have to wait and see if it is part of the Lord's plan. My goal is to follow the Lord and what he wants me to do so that someday I may enter His kingdom and receive everlasting life. #Quote by David Murphy
Baseball Player quotes by Jose Canseco

Baseball Player quotes by Mickey Mantle

Baseball Player quotes by Alex Rodriguez
#117. It is hard to ignore that is reality. But, at the same time, it still comes down to sound baseball decisions, farm systems and then execution on the field by the players. There are a lot of components to that (other) than just saying it is the highest salary. #Quote by Alex Rodriguez
Baseball Player quotes by Reggie Jackson
#118. I'm human and I've played my butt off for ten years. I'm not a loafer, I'm not a jerk, I'm a baseball player. #Quote by Reggie Jackson
Baseball Player quotes by Martha Stewart
#119. I am a hero worshiper. I love the number one tennis player. I love the number one baseball player. I want to see those records broken. #Quote by Martha Stewart
Baseball Player quotes by John Malkovich
#120. I was a very good baseball player and football player as a kid. #Quote by John Malkovich
Baseball Player quotes by Lance Berkman
#121. If you gave me a choice between being married and being a baseball player, that's a no-brainer. I would be married any day. I just love it. #Quote by Lance Berkman
Baseball Player quotes by Leo Durocher
#122. Show me a good sportsman and I'll show you a player I'm looking to trade. #Quote by Leo Durocher
Baseball Player quotes by Andrew Young
#123. My daddy was determined to make me a dentist and a baseball player. And I loved my daddy but I wasted four years of college trying to do what he wanted me to do, and not what I felt I wanted to do. #Quote by Andrew Young
Baseball Player quotes by William Trevor
#124. You can't apply academic rules to art of any kind. As soon as you begin to have rules, you begin to say, "Well, it works like this: A plus B equals C," and then you're absolutely, perfectly lost. You have to take the chance! You're gambling all the time, sometimes with no idea if a story works. But the alarming thing is in the teaching of literature, laying down what the writer was doing. If you can see through it like that, the writing is no good. You can't see through Dickens and Conrad.
It's a mystery how it's done, even to the person doing it. If you think you know, you're in deep, deep trouble. It's rather like a born athlete analyzing: if you have a baseball player who can tell you exactly how he does it, then he's not telling the truth; he doesn't know. And I think once you lose touch with that, and believe you're in charge, you could lose touch with the whole business of writing fiction.
It's an endless struggle to fool yourself. Just get going, that's the important thing. #Quote by William Trevor
Baseball Player quotes by Eric Hutchinson
#125. I love sports. If I could be a baseball player I would. I just am not good at it at all. #Quote by Eric Hutchinson
Baseball Player quotes by Casey Stengel
#126. Being with a woman all night never hurt no professional baseball player. It's staying up all night looking for a woman that does him in. #Quote by Casey Stengel
Baseball Player quotes by Lenny Dykstra
#127. Jim Fregosi was not only one of the most respected men in baseball, he was a great man. He was a player's manager. He had that special gift as a manager that made you want to get to the field and play your ass off for him. Jim Fregosi was the reason that 1993 was one of the most exciting years in Philadelphia sports history. #Quote by Lenny Dykstra
Baseball Player quotes by George Carlin
#128. Do you know the nicest thing about looking at pictures of a 1950's baseball park? The only people wearing baseball caps are the players. #Quote by George Carlin
Baseball Player quotes by Martha Beck
#129. I had a client who was a professional baseball player once, and he would go to clubs and dance for seven, eight, nine hours at a time. He wouldn't drink, he wouldn't take drugs - he just danced because he had so much physical energy; he was this amazing athlete. #Quote by Martha Beck
Baseball Player quotes by Joe Garagiola
#130. It seems the baseball player of today will not be satisfied until he plays two weeks in the big league and is able to retire at twenty-two. #Quote by Joe Garagiola
Baseball Player quotes by John Thorn
#131. Baseball is not a conventional industry. It belongs neither to the players nor management, but to all of us. It is our national pastime, our national symbol, and our national treasure. #Quote by John Thorn
Baseball Player quotes by Willem De Kooning
#132. I feel sometimes an American artist must feel, like a baseball player or something - a member of a team writing American history.. #Quote by Willem De Kooning
Baseball Player quotes by Jimmy Cannon
#133. It is the best of all games for me. It frequently escapes from the pattern of sport and assumes the form of a virile ballet. It is purer than any dance because the actions of the players are not governed by music or crowded into a formula by a director. The movement is natural and unrehearsed and controlled only by the unexpected flight of the ball. #Quote by Jimmy Cannon
Baseball Player quotes by Gerald R. Ford
#134. I had a life-long ambition to be a professional baseball player, but nobody would sign me. #Quote by Gerald R. Ford
Baseball Player quotes by Roxas James
#135. Wait. Don't we even get a say in this?" James is supposed to be a macho, baseball player. Why is he such a whiny douche? "What? You want us to take a vote?" That #Quote by Roxas James
Baseball Player quotes by Dave Winfield
#136. Tom Cruise only makes one or two film appearances a year. A baseball player can be the hero or the goat one-hundred and sixty-two times a year. #Quote by Dave Winfield
Baseball Player quotes by Billy Bob Thornton
#137. I grew up in Arkansas and that's the law. My dad was a high school basketball coach, so I was raised as a coach's son and I was a baseball player back in Arkansas, and I lived in Texas, too, so I was just surrounded by sports. So that's what I was going to do: Pitch for the St Louis Cardinals. I had no idea I was going to be an actor. So I got my collar bone broken in the Kansas City Royals training camp. And once I got hurt I started doing other things for a while. #Quote by Billy Bob Thornton
Baseball Player quotes by Eric Gagne
#138. [In hockey] I was a goon, just protecting the better players. I've always been a better baseball player. #Quote by Eric Gagne
Baseball Player quotes by Louisa Edwards
#139. You want to be queen of the mountain, you take that crown and wear it with pride. It's gonna look great on you. Me? I'm more of a baseball cap kind of guy. #Quote by Louisa Edwards
Baseball Player quotes by Luis Suarez
#140. I never told you this but I always thought the club should have recognised you far more when you retired. For the career that you had, one of Liverpool's greatest players, you should have had a much bigger and better send-off in your final match. That's just what I felt. #Quote by Luis Suarez
Baseball Player quotes by John Ortberg Jr.
#141. I can buy baseball cards to view an entire career on the back of a little square of cardboard. But nobody sells major league father cards with key statistics on the back ("Had a great season in 2005: set career highs in unforced expressions of affection and averaged 87 minutes of quality time per day.") #Quote by John Ortberg Jr.
Baseball Player quotes by Bill Parcells
#142. Give role players love. Praise can be most valuable when it's merited by someone whose supporting role is often overlooked #Quote by Bill Parcells
Baseball Player quotes by Bill Orcutt
#143. In high school I was a jazz nerd, listened to a lot of Bud Powell and Thelonious Monk and stuff like that. Maybe in Harry Pussy I was listening to more horn players. #Quote by Bill Orcutt
Baseball Player quotes by Ralph Miller
#144. When covering the man with the ball, the defense should be able to touch the ball with his hand. He should assume this touching position as the ball is being received. When the ball is received, the defense should discourage the pass into the post area. The hands should be kept up. Keeping the hands up reduces a tendency to foul and allows a player to move his hands quickly. #Quote by Ralph Miller
Baseball Player quotes by H. G. Bissinger
#145. Because Cards' fans are the most knowledgeable and loyal in all of baseball, they booed almost reluctantly, polite as booing goes, what would have passes as a standing ovation in Philly. #Quote by H. G. Bissinger
Baseball Player quotes by Luke Scott
#146. How do you combat a man with a firearm? You don't combat him with a golf club, baseball bat or a knife. You combat him with another firearm. #Quote by Luke Scott
Baseball Player quotes by Erich Maria Remarque
#147. An accordion player posted himself at the curb and played La Paloma. The rug peddlers appeared with silken Keshans over their shoulders. A boy sold pistachios at the tables. It looked as it had always looked - until the newspaper boys came. The papers were almost torn from their hands and a few seconds later the terrace, with all the unfolded papers, appeared as if buried under a swarm of huge, white, bloodless moths sitting on their victims greedily, with noiseless flapping wings. #Quote by Erich Maria Remarque
Baseball Player quotes by Roger Angell
#148. I knew I wasn't a baseball writer. I was scared to death. I really was afraid to talk to players, and I didn't want to go into the press box because I thought I was faking it. #Quote by Roger Angell
Baseball Player quotes by Serena Williams
#149. I'm an unbelievable designer. I don't know how I know and just do these things. I just start sketching and then I just know the colors and I always know the forecast. I know green and purple are going to be hot. I was born to be a designer. I worked hard to be a tennis player, I don't work hard to be a designer. #Quote by Serena Williams
Baseball Player quotes by Otto Rehhagel
#150. When I arrived the players were talented, but did not obey the rules ... Once they understood what they needed to, they could express themselves. #Quote by Otto Rehhagel
Baseball Player quotes by Kenny Cunningham
#151. He was a fantastic player, but the thing that impressed me most about Paul was his manner off the pitch. He was always very humble about his achievements and had a lot of time for the paying public and people in general. #Quote by Kenny Cunningham
Baseball Player quotes by Zack Wheat
#152. I am a ball player in the summer and a farmer in the winter time, and I aim to be a success at both professions. #Quote by Zack Wheat
Baseball Player quotes by Antonio McDyess
#153. I can be one of the dominant players, maybe the dominant player, in the East. #Quote by Antonio McDyess
Baseball Player quotes by Ricky Williams
#154. Well, I don't think I've necessarily ever been a passionate football player or a passionate person. #Quote by Ricky Williams
Baseball Player quotes by Johnny Vander Meer
#155. Kids are always chasing rainbows, but baseball is a world where you can catch them. #Quote by Johnny Vander Meer
Baseball Player quotes by A. Bartlett Giamatti
#156. On matters of race, on matters of decency, baseball should lead the way. #Quote by A. Bartlett Giamatti
Baseball Player quotes by Priest Holmes
#157. I really like defensive players. I've never played defense so I often wonder how they think. #Quote by Priest Holmes
Baseball Player quotes by Metta World Peace
#158. I'm not a player, I'm an alien. I wasn't actually there. I was in another galaxy with my galactic friends. My focus is on winning championships. I don't focus on anything else. Aliens only want to win championships. That's it. Injuries is not a focus. Trade talk is not a focus. Nothing is a focus. Gluten-free pasta is not a focus, which I would rather have gluten-free pasta. Hey, if I have to have regular pasta ... It is what it is. I'm still going to try to win a championship. Nothing will distract me from my focus, my galactic mind. #Quote by Metta World Peace
Baseball Player quotes by Richard Reti
#159. We perceive after a careful consideration of the evolution of the chess mind that such evolution has gone on, in general, in a way quite similar to that in which it goes on with the individual chess player, only with the latter more rapidly. #Quote by Richard Reti
Baseball Player quotes by Rodney Mullen
#160. As a kid, I grew up on a farm in Florida, and I did what most little kids do. I played a little baseball, did a few other things like that, but I always had the sense of being an outsider, and it wasn't until I saw pictures in the magazines that a couple other guys skate, I thought, 'Wow, that's for me,' you know? #Quote by Rodney Mullen
Baseball Player quotes by Dave Winfield
#161. And I found out, the other part of it is that I found out and in my desire to life successfully, that baseball fit very well into my life. It's been a great teacher, trainer, mentor and you'll see what I mean in the next few minutes that I have to speak. #Quote by Dave Winfield
Baseball Player quotes by Damon Lindelof
#162. My father - until the day that my dad died - didn't know how many points you scored in a touchdown. He could say there were nine innings in baseball, but no intricacies of the sport. #Quote by Damon Lindelof
Baseball Player quotes by Mikhail Chigorin
#163. Not infrequently ... the theoretical is a synonym of the stereotyped. For the 'theoretical' in chess is nothing more than that which can be found in the textbooks and to which players try to conform because they cannot think up anything better or equal, anything original. #Quote by Mikhail Chigorin
Baseball Player quotes by Pele
#164. Great teams are not made up of many well-rounded players. Great teams are made up of a variety of players, each having their own strengths. #Quote by Pele
Baseball Player quotes by LZ Granderson
#165. Just because we want our favorite team to win does not mean there's any lack of toughness when a player chooses family first. #Quote by LZ Granderson
Baseball Player quotes by Lou Holtz
#166. All an agent is going to do is buy things for a player, damage his eligibility, and make the player dependent on them. #Quote by Lou Holtz
Baseball Player quotes by Jackson Browne
#167. People know more about baseball players' contracts than they do about the policies that govern the fate of our children's lives in twenty years. Think about it. People used to say, the whole time I was growing up, 'Do you want to bring a child into this world?' That's pretty dire. #Quote by Jackson Browne
Baseball Player quotes by Jamie Carragher
#168. Thierry Henry, he was definitely the best. He was just too quick. Oh God, what a player he was. I was so relieved when he went to Barcelona. He used to have everything. You couldn't even kick him, he was big and strong, oh, Jesus, he was a nightmare #Quote by Jamie Carragher
Baseball Player quotes by David Wright
#169. I just want to taste what it's like to win in New York #Quote by David Wright
Baseball Player quotes by Novak Djokovic
#170. I don't think there has been enough communication between the players and the tournaments. In one sense it's just as much the players' fault. Players talk between each other and in the locker room about things that can be improved and then when the time comes to talk and really do something about it they stop. #Quote by Novak Djokovic
Baseball Player quotes by Tom Swift
#171. On the surface, there is something peculiar about turning a portion of one's happiness over to a collection of ballplayers, and perhaps more peculiar still is concerning oneself about ball games played decades before one's birth. #Quote by Tom Swift
Baseball Player quotes by Bryan Robson
#172. If we played like that every week, we wouldn't be so inconsistent. #Quote by Bryan Robson
Baseball Player quotes by Alex Lifeson
#173. Pete Townsend for me was a huge influence. Because essentially they were a three-piece band and the way he structured his chords and took up a lot of space musically in the songs was really important to the way Rush developed. Geddy and Neil both were such active players and lot of the time we were all playing like crazy and it was too much and somebody had to reel it in and me being the faceless guy, I would do that, #Quote by Alex Lifeson
Baseball Player quotes by Blair Hull
#174. The people who want to be recognized as the greatest traders are probably not the greatest traders. Egos get in the way of the process. In my opinion, you never want to be the largest player in the pit. #Quote by Blair Hull
Baseball Player quotes by Bill Buckner
#175. Baseball is a game of averages, but over a short period of time, to have a little luck going is not a bad thing. #Quote by Bill Buckner
