Baseball quotes by Rickey Henderson
#1. When I was a little-leaguer, I was sort of famous for stealing bases - and it started only because my mom wanted to be sure where I was in the afternoons. Mom always used to say, "If you don't come home dirty, you didn't play a baseball game." So I always tried to get in a situation where I had to slide so that I could go home dirty. #Quote by Rickey Henderson
Baseball quotes by Stephen Rodrick
#2. The only reason baseball's numerical touchstones have any significance is that most players - even the game's greats - peter out just barely before they reach them. #Quote by Stephen Rodrick
Baseball quotes by Paullina Simons
#3. Now she had words to dull her senses. English words, a new name, and covering it all like a warm blanket, a new life in amazing, immoderate, pulsating America. A sparkling new identity in a gilded immense new country. God had made it as easy as possible to forget him. To you, I give this, God said. I give you freedom and sun, and warmth, and comfort. I give you summers in Sheep Meadow and Coney Island, and I give you Vikki, your friend for life, and I give you Anthony, your son for life, and I give you Edward, in case you want love again. I give you youth and I give you beauty, in case you want someone other than Edward to love you. I give you New York. I give you seasons, and Christmas! And baseball and dancing and paved roads and refrigerators, and a car, and land in Arizona. I give it all to you. All I ask, is that you forget him and take it. #Quote by Paullina Simons

#8. He really loved baseball and loved being on the field. But Mantle was lonely in a lot of ways. He had many great friends, and by all accounts was a good, generous and loyal friend. But there were a lot of people who wanted only a piece of him. #Quote by Jane Leavy
Baseball quotes by Mickey Mantle
#9. Casey didn't easily forgive a guy who got doubled up on a hit-and-run play. He didn't see any reason why the runner couldn't take a quick glance back toward the plate to make sure the ball was hit safely. #Quote by Mickey Mantle

Baseball quotes by Roger Kahn
#17. You may glory in a team triumphant, but you fall in love with a team in defeat.

Baseball quotes by Liza Minnelli
#18. He [Gene Kelly] once told me dancing was a man's game, as much of a sport as baseball itself. And he made us believe that. He changed our minds and suddenly, all of America wanted to dance just like Gene Kelly. #Quote by Liza Minnelli
Baseball quotes by Gisele Walko
#19. Blaine, basketball, football and baseball are for commoners, the lower ninety-nine percent. We need our own thing to play when we're not sitting around talking about our family's money. You're right Sterling, How about a game called lacrosse? It's a cross between an actual sport and just being fancy like la-dee-da. That's why we call it lacrosse. We could wear polo shirts…. #Quote by Gisele Walko
Baseball quotes by John Feinstein
#20. The term in baseball nowadays is a "walk-off home run." It didn't exist until Kirk Gibson hit his famous pinch-hit home run off Dennis Eckersley in game one of the 1988 World Series and Eckersley referred to it as "a walk-off," meaning, quite simply, that when someone does what Gibson did to him in that game, there's nothing left to do except walk off the mound into the dugout and then into the clubhouse. #Quote by John Feinstein
Baseball quotes by Anne Lamott
#21. Seeing yourself in print is such an amazing concept: you can get so much attention without having to actually show up somewhere. While others who have something to say or who want to be effectual, like musicians or baseball players or politicians, have to get out there in front of people, writer who tend to be shy, get to stay at home and still be public. #Quote by Anne Lamott
Baseball quotes by Roger Angell
#22. Any baseball is beautiful. No other small package comes as close to the ideal design and utility. It is a perfect object for a man's hand. Pick it up and it instantly suggests its purpose; it is meant to be thrown a considerable distance - thrown hard and with precision. #Quote by Roger Angell
Baseball quotes by Darren Daulton
#23. Jim Fregosi will be deeply missed in the baseball world. Joni and the rest of the family are in our prayers. Fregos, was the best manager I've ever played for. Our relationship was so special.and he was the one that taught me how to be a leader. Fregos and I could relate to each other whether we were in the clubhouse or on the field. In 1993 The City of Brotherly Love changed the world..Fregos was the driving force!!! #Quote by Darren Daulton
Baseball quotes by Bob Uecker

#28. Molly stood up. You made an error! She felt like saying. A bad throw. So what? It's a baseball game. A game. Who really cares? A bad throw? In the great scheme of things? A bad throw? Of course she didn't say that. She understood that your own errors always feel tragic. #Quote by Mick Cochrane
Baseball quotes by Eric Davis
#29. I love the game, it's the greatest game on earth, that's why I can't understand all of this talk about trying to make the game better. People talk about the high strike zone and changing this and that. Why? To speed up the game? That's the beauty of baseball. There is no time element. #Quote by Eric Davis
Baseball quotes by Joe Torre
#30. In baseball, you're always moving people around. #Quote by Joe Torre
Baseball quotes by Tommy Lasorda
#31. I walk into the clubhouse today and it's like walking into the Mayo Clinic. We have four doctors, three therapists and five trainers. Back when I broke in, we had one trainer who carried a bottle of rubbing alcohol, and by the 7th inning he'd already drunk it. #Quote by Tommy Lasorda
Baseball quotes by Bert Blyleven
#32. It enrages me to see only certain players singled out for the Hall of Fame because they were born with a God-given specialty. When I take my kids to the Baseball Hall of Fame, I want them to experience the full array of talents that make the game what it is today, not just the larger-than-life freaks of nature. I want them to know that you don't have to be the biggest or the strongest to reach your goals, and that hard work and perseverance are also rewarded. #Quote by Bert Blyleven
Baseball quotes by Matt Kemp
#33. I don't do stuff to be a star. I do it because I feel it's important for kids, African American kids, to see an African American face that plays baseball. #Quote by Matt Kemp
Baseball quotes by John Updike
#34. Baseball is meant to be fun, and not all the solemn money-men in fur-collared greatcoats, not all the scruffy media cameramen and sour-faced reporters that crowd around the dugouts can quite smother the exhilarating spaciousness and grace of this impudently relaxed sport, a game of innumerable potential redemptions and curious disappointments. #Quote by John Updike
Baseball quotes by Cal Ripken, Jr.
#35. Even though my dad was a manager in the minor leagues, I still traveled around with him and saw it from the field out. Now, as an owner, you're kind of looking from the whole baseball activity from outside in, from a fan's perspective. #Quote by Cal Ripken, Jr.
Baseball quotes by Shelby Reed
#36. He looked nearly inconspicuous, a handsome man in faded Levi's and tennis shoes. A Yankees baseball cap covered his dark hair, the bill shadowing his features. Casual. Beautiful. A day's growth of beard on his jaw did little to detract from his excruciating attractiveness.
"She's eight months old, but she knows how to flirt," the baby's mother said. "Let go of the nice man's shirt, Gabbi." She dislodged the child's hand, then told Adrian, "I'm sorry. She must like the colors on your T-shirt."
Eight-month-old Gabbi's big blue eyes were fixed on Adrian's face, not on his T-shirt. Billie released a shaky breath. Good God. Even babies weren't immune. #Quote by Shelby Reed
Baseball quotes by Carl Yastrzemski
#37. I think about baseball when I wake up in the morning. I think about it all day and I dream about it at night. The only time I don't think about it is when I'm playing it. #Quote by Carl Yastrzemski
Baseball quotes by Dizzy Dean
#38. Let the teachers learn the kids English. Ol' Diz will learn the kids baseball. #Quote by Dizzy Dean
Baseball quotes by Tucker Elliot
#39. Free agency changed the baseball landscape in many ways. It created more opportunities for players, but it also meant increasingly fewer players would spend an entire career playing for one franchise - and that's especially true for players capable of becoming "legends," the ones in such demand on the free agent market. #Quote by Tucker Elliot
Baseball quotes by Luis Tiant
#40. Family is everything. It is even more important than baseball. #Quote by Luis Tiant
Baseball quotes by Vin Scully

#45. I don't rate them, I just hit them. #Quote by Willie Mays
Baseball quotes by Mark Owen
#46. As I walked past the houses, I was sure my neighbors were thinking about summer vacation plans, bills, or what baseball game they were going to watch that night. It struck me how wide the chasm was between what was going on in Afghanistan and what was happening at home. I knew my neighbors cared and supported the troops, but they had no idea what it was #Quote by Mark Owen
Baseball quotes by George Vecsey
#47. Baseball outfits went through their gaudy period during the disco '70's, when the White Sox looked like softball players and the Athletics looked like 'Saturday Night Fever' personified. #Quote by George Vecsey
Baseball quotes by Tina Fey
#48. It can't be said enough. Don't concern yourself with fashion; stick to simple pieces that flatter your body type. By nineteen, I had found my look. Oversize T-shirts, bike shorts, and wrestling shoes. To prevent the silhouette from being too baggy, I would cinch it at the waist with my fanny pack. I was pretty sure I would wear this look forever. The shirts allowed me to express myself with cool sayings like "There's No Crying in Baseball" and "Universität Heidelberg," the bike shorts showed off my muscular legs, and the fanny pack held all my trolley tokens. I was nailing it on a daily basis. Find something like this for yourself as soon as possible. #Quote by Tina Fey
Baseball quotes by T.J. Klune
#49. It started when I was a kid. I would pout and people would give me things like burritos or baseball cards. Then I got older and people would try and give me sex instead, and I just wanted another burrito. #Quote by T.J. Klune
Baseball quotes by Ferguson Jenkins
#50. I would love to see as many of the black players as possible in today's Major League Baseball make every effort to go to the Negro Leagues Museum and get a first-hand view of how it all started. #Quote by Ferguson Jenkins
Baseball quotes by Sam Rutigliano
#51. If God wanted football played in the spring, he would not have invented baseball. #Quote by Sam Rutigliano
Baseball quotes by Katie McGarry
#52. Baseball isn't just a game. It's the smell of popcorn drifting in the air, the sight of bugs buzzing near the stadium lights,the roughness of the dirt beneath your cleats. It's the anticipation building in your chest as the anthem plays, the adrenaline rush when your bat cracks against the ball, and the surge of blood when the umpire shouts strike after you pitch. It's a team full of guys backing your every move, a bleacher full of people cheering you on. It's ... life #Quote by Katie McGarry
Baseball quotes by Cal Ripken, Jr.
#53. So many good things have happened to me in the game of baseball. When I do allow myself a chance to think about it, it's almost like a storybook career. You feel so blessed to have been able to compete this long. #Quote by Cal Ripken, Jr.
Baseball quotes by Hugo Chavez

#55. Bruce Benedict is so slow he'd finish third in a race with a pregnant woman. #Quote by Tommy Lasorda

Baseball quotes by Patrick Soon-Shiong
#57. Baseball is like cricket, and I grew up in a country where they had cricket. So I understand cricket, soccer and basketball. I played basketball at the club level and a little bit in college, so that's why I'm a basketball fanatic. #Quote by Patrick Soon-Shiong
Baseball quotes by Willie McCovey
#58. I was doing what I love to do: play baseball. Not going to complain about that. #Quote by Willie McCovey
Baseball quotes by David  Wong

Baseball quotes by HOT CHILI PAPEr
#60. Boys are cheats and liars, they're such a big disgrace. They will tell you anything to get to second base... ball, baseball he thinks he's gonna score. If you let him go all the way then you are a hor... ticulture studies flowers, geologist studies rocks. The only thing a guy wants from you is a place to put his cock... roaches, beetles, butterflies and bugs. Nothing makes him happier than a giant pair of jug... glers and acrobats, a dancing bear named Chuck. All guys really want to do is - forget it, no such luck. #Quote by HOT CHILI PAPEr
Baseball quotes by Mickey Mantle

Baseball quotes by Casey Stengel
#62. The Mets has come along slow, but fast! #Quote by Casey Stengel
Baseball quotes by Michael Wilbon
#63. Football can stand parity better than any of the other sports, I think. Baseball, basketball and hockey need a defining team, in essence to frame the season. Football? Not so much. #Quote by Michael Wilbon
Baseball quotes by Curt Flood

Baseball quotes by Russell Baker

Baseball quotes by Smoky Joe Wood
#67. But wherever I was I played baseball. That's all I lived for. When I sat up on the front seat of that covered wagon next to my father, I was wearing a baseball glove. That showed anybody who was interested where I wanted to go. #Quote by Smoky Joe Wood
Baseball quotes by Pete Rose
#68. If baseball wants to get you, they've got enough resources and enough investigators that they'll find a way to get you. #Quote by Pete Rose
Baseball quotes by Mel Allen
#69. In 1961, when Maris broke Babe Ruth's record, he wasn't intentionally walked once. Mickey batted after Roger, and nobody was going to put a man on base with Mantle coming up to the plate. #Quote by Mel Allen
Baseball quotes by Cal Ripken, Jr.
#70. Your job as a baseball player is to come to the park ready to play every day, and the manager, it's his job to make those decisions about who plays. #Quote by Cal Ripken, Jr.

Baseball quotes by Alex Bregman
#73. I don't think I've changed very much. I think I'm the same kid that I was when I got here. When I came here all I wanted to do was win games. I wanted to play baseball for LSU and be the ultimate team player. That's all I want to do. If we don't end up being the last team to win the game at the end of the year then I won't be happy. That's all I'm worried about this year. #Quote by Alex Bregman
Baseball quotes by Evel Knievel
#74. When you're mad at someone, it's probably best not to break his arm with a baseball bat. #Quote by Evel Knievel

Baseball quotes by Al Spalding

Baseball quotes by T.T. Monday
#78. Most people, ordinary citizens, regard Major League Baseball with a reverence bordering on foolishness. They believe an institution so old and storied must be honest at its core. Even after the '94 strike, even after steroids, they continue to believe. Baseball is the drunken uncle America keeps inviting back to Thanksgiving, even though we know he's going to puke and pass out on the floor. #Quote by T.T. Monday
Baseball quotes by Rick Riordan
#79. DIE!" Gleeson Hedge dropped directly behind Orion, smacking his baseball bat over the giant's head so hard the Louisville Slugger cracked in half. #Quote by Rick Riordan
Baseball quotes by David B. Lentz
#80. The Housefly
I'm just a little pesky thing,
Flying to eke out a living.
So round and round and round I hiss,
And fill the air with busy bliss.
Of hand and swatter steering clear,
I venture to light on crumbs and beer.
In salad days I was a Grecian king.
War and famine make me sing.
How much they'd like to whack me flat,
With a newspaper or even a baseball bat.
Splat! #Quote by David B. Lentz
Baseball quotes by Ken Harrelson
#81. The more pitches you see, the more dangerous you become. #Quote by Ken Harrelson
Baseball quotes by Paul Copperman
#82. Consider what a child misses during the 15, 000 hours (from birth to age seventeen) he spends in front of the TV screen. He is not working in the garage with his father, or in the garden with his mother. He is not doing homework, or reading, or collecting stamps. He is not cleaning his room, washing the supper dishes, or cutting the lawn. He is not listening to a discussion about community politics among his parents and their friends. He is not playing baseball or going fishing, or painting pictures. Exactly what does television offer that is so valuable it can replace these activities that transform an impulsive, self-absorbed child into a critically thinking adult? #Quote by Paul Copperman
Baseball quotes by C.C. Gibbs
#83. And I played football so I knocked a few heads around there, but nothing out of the ordinary. I played baseball too but that's not a contact sport.' No way he was going to mention the endless sex – which was a contact sport. #Quote by C.C. Gibbs
Baseball quotes by Herbert Hoover

Baseball quotes by Ernest Kurtz
#86. Baseball teaches that errors are part of the game. #Quote by Ernest Kurtz
Baseball quotes by Katharine Sergeant Angell White
#87. Consider the many special delights a lawn affords: soft mattress for a creeping baby; worm hatchery for a robin; croquet or badminton court; baseball diamond; restful green perspectives leading the eye to a background of flower beds, shrubs, or hedge; green shadows - This lawn, a carpet all alive/With shadows flung from leaves' - as changing and as spellbinding as the waves of the sea, whether flecked with sunlight under trees of light foliage, like elm and locust, or deep, dark, solid shade, moving slowly as the tide, under maple and oak. This carpet! #Quote by Katharine Sergeant Angell White
Baseball quotes by Roger Angell
#88. I think I wrote once that baseball in many ways is very much like reading. I said there are more bad books than bad ballgames, or maybe it was the other way around. I can't remember. #Quote by Roger Angell
Baseball quotes by Laraine Day
#89. My life as Mrs. Leo Durocher and baseball come first. #Quote by Laraine Day
Baseball quotes by Mike Piazza

Baseball quotes by James Gray

Baseball quotes by Max Fink
#92. The differential diagnosis of catatonia According to an old story, there are three different types of baseball umpires.

Baseball quotes by Philip Roth
#93. Oh, to be a center fielder, a center fielder- and nothing more #Quote by Philip Roth
Baseball quotes by Dave Dravecky
#94. All you have to do is pick up a baseball. It begs to you: throw me. If you took a year to design an object to hurl, you'd end up with that little spheroid small enough to nestle in your fingers but big enough to have some heft, lighter than a rock but heavier than a hunk of wood. Its even, neat stitching, laced into the leather's slippery white surface, gives your fingers a purchase. A baseball was made to throw. It's almost irresistible. #Quote by Dave Dravecky
Baseball quotes by Beverly Johnson
#95. Rocks make no compromise for sex ... rock climbing is not like some sports, where it is made easier for women; or sports like, say, softball, which is only baseball for soft people. On a rock, everything is equal. #Quote by Beverly Johnson
Baseball quotes by Andy Van Slyke
#96. I have an Alka-Seltzer bat. You know-plop, plop, fizz, fizz, when the pitcher sees me walking up there he says, 'Oh, what a relief it is'. #Quote by Andy Van Slyke
Baseball quotes by John Irving
#97. They were childless - Dan Needham suggested that their sexual roles might be so "reversed" as to make childbearing difficult - and their attendance at Little League games was marked by a constant disapproval of the sport: that little girls were not allowed to play in the Little League was an example of sexual stereotyping that exercised the Dowlings' humorlessness and fury. Should they have a daughter, they warned, she would play in the Little League. They were a couple with a theme - sadly, it was their only theme, and a small theme, and they overplayed it, but a young couple with such a burning mission was quite interesting to the generally slow, accepting types who were more typical in Gravesend. Mr. Chickering, our fat coach and manager, lived in dread of the day the Dowlings might produce a daughter. Mr. Chickering was of the old school - he believed that only boys should play baseball, and that girls should watch them play, or else play soft-ball. #Quote by John Irving
Baseball quotes by George Vecsey
#98. There is no sports event like Opening Day of baseball, the sense of beating back the forces of darkness and the National Football League. #Quote by George Vecsey
Baseball quotes by Tucker Elliot
#99. It's hard to dismiss the obvious symmetry between Longo [Evan Longoria] and the franchise for which he's now the poster-child: for the player, Hondo Junior College to MLB All-Star ... for the team, worst to first. #Quote by Tucker Elliot
Baseball quotes by Jose Canseco
#100. I am and will always be just simply a basball [sic] player, my tomb stone will just say. Baseball. #Quote by Jose Canseco
Baseball quotes by Robert Orben

Baseball quotes by Joaquin Andujar

Baseball quotes by Michael Jordan
#103. Confidence allows you to progress in something you're attempting to accomplish, whether it's playing basketball or baseball or whether it's trying to succeed in business. #Quote by Michael Jordan
Baseball quotes by Michael Cera
#104. Baseball players tend to have something like 20 good years in them and then around their mid-thirties they aren't in the same shape as the young guys in the league and kind of aren't worth as much. Then they retire before 40. And they are left floating adrift in the middle of the ocean. #Quote by Michael Cera
Baseball quotes by Mark Halliday
#105. People need people and the happiest people are
surrounded with friendly flesh.
If you have ten kids they'll be so sweet
ten really sweet kids! Have twelve!
What if there were 48 pro baseball teams,
you could see a damn lot more games!
And in this fashion we get away
from tragedy. Because tragedy comes when someone
gets too special. #Quote by Mark Halliday
Baseball quotes by Alexandra Bracken
#106. I'll teach you later, but for now I just need someone to watch the signs for me. Come on up to the copilot chair."
I jerked a thumb in the direction of Chubs.
Liam only shook his head. "Are you kidding me? Yesterday he thought a mailbox was a clown."
I unbuckle my seat belt with a sigh. As I climbed over Chubs's outstretched legs to the front, I glanced over my shoulder, my eyes going to his too-small glasses. " Is his eyesight really that bad?"
"Worse," Liam said. "So, right after we got the hell out of Caledonia, we broke into this house to spend the night, right? I woke up in the middle of the night hearing the most awful noise, like a cow dying or something. I followed the wailing, clutching some kid's baseball bat, thinking I was going to have to beat someone's head in for us to make a clean getaway. then I saw what was sitting at the bottom of a drained pool."
"No way," I said.
"Way," he confirmed. "Hawkeye had gone out to relieve himself and had somehow missed the giant gaping hole in the ground. Twisted his ankle and couldn't climb out of the deep end.
I tried so hard not to laugh, but it was impossible. The mental image was just too damn good. #Quote by Alexandra Bracken
Baseball quotes by Cal Ripken, Jr.
#107. Whether your name is (Lou) Gehrig or (Cal) Ripken, (Joe) DiMaggio or (Jackie) Robinson, or that of some youngster who picks up his bat or puts on his glove, you are challenged by the game of baseball to do your very best day in and day out. That's all I've ever tried to do. #Quote by Cal Ripken, Jr.
Baseball quotes by Carl Yastrzemski
#108. I was lucky enough to have the talent to play baseball. That's how I treated my career. I didn't think I was anybody special, anybody different. #Quote by Carl Yastrzemski
Baseball quotes by Dylan O'Brien

Baseball quotes by Patti Smith
#110. Spanish pilgrims travel on Camino de Santiago from monastery to monastery, collecting small medals to attach to their rosary as proof of their steps. I have stacks of Polaroids, each marking my own, that I sometimes spread out like tarots or baseball cards of an imagined celestial team. #Quote by Patti Smith
Baseball quotes by Mickey Mantle
#111. Thank God for baseball. #Quote by Mickey Mantle
Baseball quotes by Doug Harvey
#112. Balls and strikes are the basic tenet to everything in baseball. From the perspective of hitting, pitching, offense and defense, it's all about the strike zone and how the battle is waged there between the pitcher and hitter. #Quote by Doug Harvey

#113. If a man doesn't like baseball, then he must like horses, and if he doesn't like either of them, well, I'm in trouble anyway: he don't like girls. #Quote by Truman Capote
Baseball quotes by JohnA Passaro
#114. There is something special about baseball that goes far deeper than being a game. It is the father-son relationship that is built, the life lessons that are taught in the process of playing a game and the ability to overcome not succeeding all of the time and still considering yourself a success. #Quote by JohnA Passaro
Baseball quotes by Greg Van Eekhout
#115. We wanted you to achieve the greatest osteomancy you were capable of."
"What if I wanted to be a professional baseball player?"
"Then we would have found you the best coaches and bought you a really good mitt. Did you want to be a professional baseball player?"
"Naw. I got hit in the eye with a ball once and set it on fire. #Quote by Greg Van Eekhout
Baseball quotes by Chad Harbach
#116. But baseball was different. Schwartz thought of it as Homeric - not a scrum but a series of isolated contests. Batter versus pitcher, fielder versus ball. You couldn't storm around, snorting and slapping people, the way Schwartz did while playing football.You stood and waited and tried to still your mind. When your moment came, you had to be ready, because if you fucked up, everyone would know whose fault it was. What other sport not only kept a stat as cruel as the error but posted it on the scoreboard for everyone to see? #Quote by Chad Harbach
Baseball quotes by Michael Cera
#117. I heard Bob Weinstein actually likened actors to baseball players. You work for a while then all of a sudden you go through a dry spell. #Quote by Michael Cera
Baseball quotes by Tony La Russa
#118. There's a bigger difference now than when I first got into professional baseball because that was before guaranteed contracts, before there was a lot of money, so it was mostly survival. You had more competition. #Quote by Tony La Russa
Baseball quotes by Woody Allen
#119. I think you should defend to the death their right to march, and then go down and meet them with baseball bats. (On the KKK) #Quote by Woody Allen
Baseball quotes by Ty Cobb
#120. The most important part of a player's body is above his shoulders. #Quote by Ty Cobb
Baseball quotes by Yogi Berra
#121. It ain't over 'til it's over. #Quote by Yogi Berra
Baseball quotes by George Will
#122. It (baseball) has no clock, no ties and no Liberal intrusions into the organized progression. #Quote by George Will
Baseball quotes by Stephen Jay Gould
#123. I view the major features of my own odyssey as a set of mostly fortunate contingencies. I was not destined by inherited mentality or family tradition to become a paleontologist. I can locate no tradition for scientific or intellectual careers anywhere on either side of my eastern European Jewish background. [ ... ] I view my serious and lifelong commitment to baseball in entirely the same manner: purely as a contingent circumstance of numerous, albeit not entirely capricious, accidents. #Quote by Stephen Jay Gould
Baseball quotes by Ernie Harwell
#124. Baseball is a lot like life. It's a day-to-day existence, full of ups and downs. You make the most of your opportunities in baseball as you do in life. #Quote by Ernie Harwell
Baseball quotes by Marv Levy
#125. Whenever I think of baseball, the first name that comes to mind is Babe Ruth. What the Babe was to baseball, Shula is to football coaching. There are certain figures in sports who are larger than the games they play or coach, and Don Shula is one of those. #Quote by Marv Levy
Baseball quotes by Dusty Baker
#126. I love sharing my knowledge of hitting with others. Now coaches and players at all levels can learn my systematic approach to hitting a baseball with more consistency, mental strength and accuracy. #Quote by Dusty Baker
Baseball quotes by Tommy Lasorda
#127. When I took the job as the manager of the Olympic team, I didn't take it because I was a Dodger. I did it because I was an American, and I wanted to bring that gold medal where it belongs in baseball, the United States. And that's exactly what our team did. #Quote by Tommy Lasorda
Baseball quotes by Red Ruffing
#128. You saw him standing out there, and you knew you had a pretty damn good chance to win the baseball game. #Quote by Red Ruffing
Baseball quotes by Hank Aaron
#129. I was being thrown to the wolves. Even though I did something great, nobody wanted to be a part of it. I was so isolated. I couldn't share it. For many years, even after Jackie Robinson, baseball was so segregated, really. You just didn't expect us to have a chance to do anything. Baseball was meant for the lily-white. #Quote by Hank Aaron
Baseball quotes by Dan Epstein
#130. In the two weeks following the All-Star Game, baseball was largely upstaged by the events of the XXI Olympiad in Montreal, including Romanian gymnast Nadia Comaneci's seven perfect 10.0 scores, Bruce Jenner's record-setting decathlon triumph, and the five gold medals won by U.S. boxers Howard Davis Jr., Sugar Ray Leonard, Leo Randolph, and brothers Leon and Michael Spinks - the mightiest performance of any American boxing team in Olympic history. #Quote by Dan Epstein
Baseball quotes by Ty Simpkins
#131. I just love baseball; it's one of my favorite sports. #Quote by Ty Simpkins
Baseball quotes by Michael B. Jordan
#132. I love sports. I've played basketball, baseball, soccer, tennis, track and field growing up. #Quote by Michael B. Jordan
Baseball quotes by Brady Anderson
#133. What cracks me up is people who think I don't take baseball seriously. It's the most important thing in my life. They don't know how hard it is for me to get a bad game out of my mind. I still can't, but I'm getting better. #Quote by Brady Anderson
Baseball quotes by David Cone
#134. With one decision, Judge Sotomayor changed the entire dispute. Her ruling rescued the 1995 baseball season and forced the parties to resume real negotiations. #Quote by David Cone
Baseball quotes by John Kruk
#135. I'm not an athlete, I'm a baseball player. #Quote by John Kruk
Baseball quotes by Chuck Tanner
#136. Having Willie Stargell on your ball club is like having a diamond ring on your finger. #Quote by Chuck Tanner
Baseball quotes by Harrison Ford
#137. I never followed baseball very much. As a kid, I never followed sports. #Quote by Harrison Ford
Baseball quotes by Conan O'Brien
#138. President Bush left for Canada today to attend a trade summit. Reportedly, the trade summit got off to an awkward start when the president pulled out his baseball cards. #Quote by Conan O'Brien
Baseball quotes by Norman Rockwell
#139. I unconsciously decided that, even if it wasn't an ideal world, it should be so and painted only the ideal aspects of it - pictures in which there are no drunken slatterns or self-centered mothers ... only foxy grandpas who played baseball with kids and boys who fished from logs and got up circuses in the back yard. #Quote by Norman Rockwell
Baseball quotes by Willie Mays
#140. Defense to me is the key to playing baseball. #Quote by Willie Mays
Baseball quotes by John Madden
#141. I tried golf for a while, but I wasn't very good at it, so I didn't play a lot of golf. I enjoy all sports, not just football. I like basketball, baseball, and I got into the World Cup. So really, sports in general are my life, and football specifically. #Quote by John Madden
Baseball quotes by Mickey Mantle
#142. Well, baseball was my whole life. Nothing's ever been as fun as baseball. #Quote by Mickey Mantle
Baseball quotes by Bob Feller
#143. I don't think baseball owes colored people anything. I don't think colored people owe baseball anything, either. #Quote by Bob Feller
Baseball quotes by Jarod Kintz
#144. It's like my grandpa always used to say, 'A butter knife would make a deadlier weapon than a melting stick of butter.'"


"Your grandpa never said that."


"No, but he should have. He was a damn fool not to have uttered those words."


"My grandpa was a janitor, in the Great Depression. The greatest thing he ever said was, 'Greg, I just Gregged all over your floor. Do you have a mop I can use to clean it up?'"


"Who's Greg?"


"I don't know."


"What the shit kind of story is that? That story is bullshit. Greg doesn't exist. Nobody knows nobody named Greg. It's a unicorn name - it's complete mythology."


"What about Lou Greg, the baseball player?"


"Lou who? Lou Gehrig?"


"Here's a Lou for you. Greg Louganis."


"Bah, Greg Louganis doesn't exist. He was a myth created by the Soviets to push their divers to perfection. The Russians realized they couldn't be the best until they deceived their divers into believing there was someone who was always better."


"I've seen Greg Louganis, and he's as real as you or me."


"You've seen what they wanted you to see. They gave you a blindfold to wear and convinced you it would improve your eyesight." #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Baseball quotes by Mel Allen
#145. Ladies and gentlemen, the great number seven, Mickey Mantle. #Quote by Mel Allen
Baseball quotes by Paul Gallico
#146. No game in the world is as tidy and dramatically neat as baseball, with cause and effect, crime and punishment, motive and result, so cleanly defined. #Quote by Paul Gallico
Baseball quotes by Jerry Coleman
#147. The Cards lead the Dodgers 4-2 after one inning and that one hasn't even started. #Quote by Jerry Coleman
Baseball quotes by John Thorn
#148. And then came the nineties, when management, suddenly frightened that they had ceded control to the players, sought to restore baseball's profitability by 'running the game like a business.' #Quote by John Thorn
Baseball quotes by George Vecsey
#149. Pennant races drain the energy from the best of them. Old-fashioned baseball races are to me the most grueling daily test in any sport. Gotta keep coming out, every day, in the face of looming disaster. #Quote by George Vecsey
Baseball quotes by Joe Posnanski
#150. Baseball in the Negro Leagues was a little bit rougher, a little bit sweeter, a little bit faster, a little bit cooler, and a little bit more fun than anything... in Major League baseball. #Quote by Joe Posnanski
Baseball quotes by Jerry Reinsdorf
#151. I only had one player in my 33 years of sports that couldn't be traded. He wore No. 23 - and 45 when he played baseball. #Quote by Jerry Reinsdorf
Baseball quotes by Collette West
#152. You need something more from me - something I wasn't able to give you before. #Quote by Collette West
Baseball quotes by Hank Aaron
#153. I would like people not to think in terms of the 755 home runs I hit but think in terms of what I've accomplished off the field and some of the things I stood for. #Quote by Hank Aaron
Baseball quotes by Tony La Russa
#154. Just because you're down to your last strike, you're not out yet. You can always do more. You'll always have more at-bats to take. That's true in baseball, in rescuing animals, and in life, generally. #Quote by Tony La Russa
Baseball quotes by Sandy Alderson
#155. Oakland has now increased its payroll to the point that it now ranks third in the Bay Area among all McDonald's franchises. #Quote by Sandy Alderson
Baseball quotes by Charley Pride
#156. There only have been two people on this earth that I was nervous around: Chet Atkins and Mickey Mantle. It's because of the respect I have for them. #Quote by Charley Pride
Baseball quotes by Jimmy Piersall
#157. Spread the diaper in the position of the diamond with you at bat. Then fold second base down to home and set the baby on the pitcher's mound. Put first base and third together, bring up home plate and pin the three together. Of course, in case of rain, you gotta call the game and start all over again. #Quote by Jimmy Piersall
Baseball quotes by Herbert Hoover
#158. Baseball is the greatest of all team sports. #Quote by Herbert Hoover
Baseball quotes by Christopher  Ryan
#159. You Are What You Eat

Take food for example. We all assume that our craving or disgust is due to something about the food itself - as opposed to being an often arbitrary response preprogrammed by our culture. We understand that Australians prefer cricket to baseball, or that the French somehow find Gerard Depardieu sexy, but how hungry would you have to be before you would consider plucking a moth from the night air and popping it, frantic and dusty, into your mouth? Flap, crunch, ooze. You could wash it down with some saliva beer.How does a plate of sheep brain's sound? Broiled puppy with gravy? May we interest you in pig ears or shrimp heads? Perhaps a deep-fried songbird that you chew up, bones, beak, and all? A game of cricket on a field of grass is one thing, but pan-fried crickets over lemongrass? That's revolting.

Or is it? If lamb chops are fine, what makes lamb brains horrible? A pig's shoulder, haunch, and belly are damn fine eatin', but the ears, snout, and feet are gross? How is lobster so different from grasshopper? Who distinguishes delectable from disgusting, and what's their rationale? And what about all the expectations? Grind up those leftover pig parts, stuff 'em in an intestine, and you've got yourself respectable sausage or hot dogs. You may think bacon and eggs just go together, like French fries and ketchup or salt and pepper. But the combination of bacon and eggs for breakfast was dreamed up about a hundred years aqo by an advertis #Quote by Christopher Ryan
Baseball quotes by Dave Pelzer
#160. In life you are going to make mistakes, you're going to fall down, but it's the getting up that counts. Just like in baseball: you'll get a few hits, but most likely, you'll strike out more than you'll get on base. But don't quit. Find your focus, relax, take a deep breath and give it a good swing #Quote by Dave Pelzer
Baseball quotes by Casey Stengel
#161. You can't go out to the mound hobbling and take a pitcher out with a cane. #Quote by Casey Stengel
Baseball quotes by Ted Kluszewski
#162. I'm not sure what the hell charisma is, but I get the feeling it's Willie Mays. #Quote by Ted Kluszewski
Baseball quotes by Jerry Coleman
#163. There's a hard shot to LeMaster, he throws Madlock into the dugout. #Quote by Jerry Coleman
Baseball quotes by Paul O'Grady
#164. The worst drivers are women in people carriers, men in white vans and anyone in a baseball cap. That's just about everyone. #Quote by Paul O'Grady
Baseball quotes by Andy Van Slyke
#165. If someone from Germany or somewhere, who had no idea what baseball was, saw Kruk play, he'd wonder what the beer truck driver was doing playing first base. #Quote by Andy Van Slyke
Baseball quotes by Eddie Murray
#166. Baseball is a team game. #Quote by Eddie Murray
Baseball quotes by Thierry Henry
#167. Baseball and American football and hockey are all ahead because they have a history. The MLS is kind of new. So hopefully, in time, and with players coming and trying to develop the game, and the U.S. team also doing well - at the last World Cup, they finished above England and created some buzz. #Quote by Thierry Henry
Baseball quotes by Maggie Georgiana Young
#168. I always imagined rape as this violent scene of a woman walking alone down a dark alley and getting mugged and beaten by some masked criminal. Rape was an angry man forcing himself inside a damsel in distress. I would not carry the trauma of a cliché rape victim. I would not shriek in the midst of my slumber with night terrors. I would not tremble at the sight of every dark haired man or the mention of Number 1's name. I would not even harbor ill will towards him. My damage was like a cigarette addiction- subtle, seemingly innocent, but everlasting and inevitably detrimental.
Number 1 never opened his screen door to furious crowds waving torches and baseball bats. Nobody punched him out in my honor. The Nightfall crowd never socially ostracized him. Even the ex-boyfriend who'd second handedly fused the entire fiasco continued to mingle with him in drug circles. Everybody continued with business as usual. And when I told my parents I lost my virginity against my will, unconscious on a bathroom floor, Carl did not erupt in fury and demand I give him all I knew about his whereabouts so he could greet him with a rifle. Mom blankly shrugged and mumbled, "Oh, that's too bad," and drifted into the kitchen as if I'd received a stubbed toe rather than a shredded hymen.
Everyone in my life took my rape as lightly as a brief thunderstorm that might have been frightening when it happened, but was easy to forget about. I adopted that mentality as the foundation of my sex life #Quote by Maggie Georgiana Young
Baseball quotes by Lefty Gomez
#169. A lot of things run through your head when you're going in to relieve in a tight spot. One of them was, "Should I spike myself?" #Quote by Lefty Gomez
Baseball quotes by William Brohaugh

Baseball quotes by Jerry Coleman
#171. Montreal leads Atlanta by three, 5-1. #Quote by Jerry Coleman
Baseball quotes by A. Bartlett Giamatti
#172. There are a lot of people who know me who can't understand for the life of them why I would got to work on something as unserious as baseball. If they only knew. #Quote by A. Bartlett Giamatti
Baseball quotes by Jerry Coleman
#173. Gene Richards swings, the ball bounces foul and hits him in the head. No harm done. #Quote by Jerry Coleman
Baseball quotes by John Salathe
#174. I find that rock climbing is the finest, most healthiest sport in the whole world. It is much healthier than most; look at baseball, where 10 000 sit on their ass to watch a handful of players #Quote by John Salathe
Baseball quotes by Babe Ruth
#175. I said I'm going to hit the next one right over the flagpole. God must have been with me. #Quote by Babe Ruth
Baseball quotes by Jeffrey Toobin
#176. In public at least, Roberts himself purports to have a different view of the Court than his conservative sponsors. "Judges are like umpires," he said at his confirmation hearing. "Umpires don't make the rules; they apply them." Elsewhere, Roberts has often said, "Judges are not politicians." None of this is true. Supreme Court justices are nothing at all like baseball umpires. It is folly to pretend that the awesome work of interpreting the Constitution, and thus defining the rights and obligations of American citizenship, is akin to performing the rote […] task of calling balls and strikes. When it comes to the core of the Court's work, determining the contemporary meaning of the Constitution, it is ideology, not craft or skill, that controls the outcome of cases. #Quote by Jeffrey Toobin
Baseball quotes by Roger Angell
#177. Hold a baseball in your hand ... Feel the ball, turn it over in your hand; hold it across the seam or the other way, with the seam just to the side of your middle finger. Speculation stirs. You want to get outdoors and throw this spare and sensual object to somebody or, at the very least, watch somebody else throw it. The game has begun. #Quote by Roger Angell
Baseball quotes by Robert Kennedy
#178. I come from a family that has always emphasized and enjoyed sports - golf, tennis, football, baseball and the rest. #Quote by Robert Kennedy
Baseball quotes by Billy Herman
#179. Rules are made to be broken, so there won't be any rules. #Quote by Billy Herman
Baseball quotes by Roger Angell
#180. This was a new recognition that perfection is admirable but a trifle inhuman, and that a stumbling kind of semi-success can be much more warming. Most of all, perhaps, these exultant yells for the Mets were also yells for ourselves, and came from a wry, half-understood recognition that there is more Met than Yankee in every one of us. I knew for whom that foghorn blew; it blew for me. #Quote by Roger Angell
Baseball quotes by Bob Uecker
#181. When I played baseball I got death threats all the time
from my mother. #Quote by Bob Uecker
Baseball quotes by Jim Bouton
#182. Pete Rose gets banned for life for gambling while the drug addicts are allowed back after a year; and then they get extra chances after that. Baseball is saying, in effect, that gambling is worse than drugs. How do kids make sense out of that? #Quote by Jim Bouton
Baseball quotes by Jim Thorpe
#183. The Yankees, you see, they're a money team, they're the class of baseball. You don't ever bet against that. #Quote by Jim Thorpe
Baseball quotes by Louise Brown
#184. Don't call 'em dogs. Dogs are loyal and they run after balls. #Quote by Louise Brown
Baseball quotes by Tucker Elliot
#185. After being maligned for his lack of offense for much of his career, [César] Gerónimo batted .280 with two home runs, a triple, three runs, and three RBIs vs. Boston during the 1975 World Series, and then he batted .308 with two doubles, two steals, and three runs vs. New York during the 1976 World Series. The man who's defense Sparky Anderson called 'ungodly' became an offensive star on baseball's biggest stage. #Quote by Tucker Elliot
Baseball quotes by Tucker Elliot
#186. The Indians franchise is more than a century old. It's been called the Blues, the Bronchos, and the Naps. It's also been called a lot worse during hard times when the team wasn't winning. #Quote by Tucker Elliot
Baseball quotes by Ron Washington
#187. Thats the way baseball go #Quote by Ron Washington
Baseball quotes by Joe Garagiola
#188. I went through baseball as 'a player to be named later.' #Quote by Joe Garagiola
Baseball quotes by Juliana Hatfield
#189. Baseball is more than a game. It's like life played out on a field. #Quote by Juliana Hatfield
Baseball quotes by Matt Kemp
#190. I'm always telling people baseball needs to be more prominent in the African American community. What a better way to do so, going on these TV shows and appearing on the cover of this or that. Now kids can see how baseball can change your life. Frank Thomas did that for me. #Quote by Matt Kemp
Baseball quotes by Joe Morgan
#191. A good base stealer should make the whole infield jumpy. Whether you steal or not, you're changing the rhythm of the game. If the pitcher is concerned about you, he isn't concentrating enough on the batter. #Quote by Joe Morgan
Baseball quotes by Jeff Jarvis
#192. Then I narrowed the definition of the journalism sharply to focus on the journalism that matters, arguing that if it is not advocacy, it is not journalism - that is, if it does not strive to have a positive impact on the lives of citizens, then it is not journalism. If it does not hold power to account on behalf of citizens, it is not journalism. If it merely covers the baseball game or the county fair or the latest fire, that is not necessarily journalism. Journalism changes its world. #Quote by Jeff Jarvis
Baseball quotes by Sparky Anderson
#193. I managed 26 years and found out when I retired I didn't own the game. I thought I owned it when I was managing all those years. You can climb to the top of the mountain, get down on your knees and kiss the ground, because you'll never own that mountain. That mountain is only owned by one single person, and he'll never give it up. That's the way baseball is. #Quote by Sparky Anderson
Baseball quotes by Laraine Day
#194. Baseball is not a lot of statistics to me. It's blood and tears. #Quote by Laraine Day
Baseball quotes by Albert Belle
#195. In the past I've tended to overreact. I was sure I'd be a superstar by the time I was twenty-one. Baseball messed up my plan of life. When I fail I get upset. Sometimes I get upset too quickly, without thinking of consequences. #Quote by Albert Belle
Baseball quotes by Jerry Coleman
#196. DeShaies is like a clock out there. Every other pitch goes one way or the other. #Quote by Jerry Coleman
Baseball quotes by Richard Corliss
#197. Football's a war game without fatal casualties; baseball is a picnic on a huge field, without the food. #Quote by Richard Corliss
Baseball quotes by Tina Fey
#198. This is the same advice they give people who've just come out of rehab. After a grueling period of work (or what passes for grueling work in our soft-handed world) you will crave some kind of reward. Don't let this cause you to rush into a big decision, like a new house or a marriage or partial ownership of a minor league baseball team, that you may later regret. The interesting thing about this piece of advice is that no one ever takes it. #Quote by Tina Fey
Baseball quotes by Jerry Coleman
#199. Even though the ball was doubled, they got it anyway. #Quote by Jerry Coleman
Baseball quotes by Pete Rose
#200. When you step into the batter's box, have nothing on your mind except baseball. #Quote by Pete Rose
