Catchers quotes by Jase Robertson
#1. I found the same excitement in hunting frogs and deer for the first time. The first time I went frog-hunting, I was dumb-founded that someone could have that much fun without doing something immoral or illegal. I was the ice chest man on my first hunt, which basically meant every time my dad caught a frog I would quickly open the lid and then shut it before the frog jumped out. I realized the best part was being the catcher. I don't want to brag, but I became one of the greatest frog catchers on the planet. #Quote by Jase Robertson
Catchers quotes by Bill Bryson
#2. Criminality was so widespread that its practitioners split into fields of specialization. Some became coney catchers, or swindlers (a coney was a rabbit reared for the table and thus unsuspectingly tame); others became foists (pickpockets), nips, or nippers (cutpurses), hookers (who snatched desirables through open windows with hooks), abtams (who feigned lunacy to provide a distraction), whipjacks, fingerers, cross biters, cozeners, courtesy men, and many more. Brawls were shockingly common. #Quote by Bill Bryson
Catchers quotes by Pete Rose
#3. When people think of me, they think about me knocking catchers down and knocking second basemen down and yelling at pitchers. But when I took the spikes off after the game, I was a nice guy when I went home. #Quote by Pete Rose
Catchers quotes by Nolan Ryan
#4. Maintaining concentration depends on what I call tunnel vision; nothing else in the world exists but the catcher's target, the hitter and my perfect delivery. #Quote by Nolan Ryan
Catchers quotes by Deb Caletti
#5. What happened?" I ask. My heart hurts.
"That big guy," he says. His voice is high and tight. "Number forty-six. Jeez, he just bashed his shoulder right into my chest, and when I was on the ground, he steps on my leg with his cleat." He sniffs hard, rubs his nose on his sleeve, doesn't meet my eyes.
"That bastard," I say. "The minute he gets off the field I'm going to kick him in the balls." Oliver laughs a little, his eyes filling up at the same time. "He'll never know what hit him. His balls are gonna go flying, I promise you that. People will wish they brought their catcher's mitts. #Quote by Deb Caletti
Catchers quotes by Brian D. Meeks
#6. I take many things seriously. Rudyard Kipling, Harper Lee, Oscar Wilde, and Elmore Leonard are all held in the highest regard. I am dead serious when I discuss the many reasons that Ernest Hemingway's greatest contribution to literature was his generous decision to take his own life. I will not be sucked into a discussion of politics by people who prefer emotion to reason. The designated hitter is an abomination, and the day pitchers and catchers report is the start of the new year despite what those ill-informed calendar makers might try to tell you." "I #Quote by Brian D. Meeks
Catchers quotes by Casey Stengel
#7. You have to draft a catcher, because if you don't have one, the pitch will roll all the way back to the screen. #Quote by Casey Stengel
Catchers quotes by Emo Philips
#8. My dad and I, we used to play baseball. I was the catcher. Which I liked. Until one day, I saw this game on TV, and I said, Hang on, how come their catcher doesn't have his hands tied to his ankles? #Quote by Emo Philips
Catchers quotes by Yogi Berra
#9. I usually take a two-hour nap from one to four. #Quote by Yogi Berra
Catchers quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#10. Taking the catcher's place, he sank to his haunches and gestured to Arthur.
"Throw some easy ones to begin with," he called, and Arthur nodded, seeming to lose his apprehensiveness. "Yes, milord!"
Arthur wound up and released a relaxed, straight pitch. Squinting in determination, Lilian gripped the bat hard, stepped into the swing, and turned her hips to lend more impetus to the motion. To her disgust, she missed the ball completely. Turning around, she gave Westcliff a pointed glance. "Well, your advice certainly helped," she muttered sarcastically.
"Elbows," came his succinct reminder, and he tossed the ball to Arthur. "Try again."
Heaving a sigh, Lillian raised the bat and faced the pitcher once more.
Arthur drew his arm back, and lunged forward as he delivered another fast ball.
Lillian brought the bat around with a grunt of effort, finding an unexpected ease in adjusting the swing to just the right angle, and she received a jolt of visceral delight as she felt the solid connection between the bat and the leather ball. With a loud crack the ball was catapulted high into the air, over Arthur's head, beyond the reach of those in the back field. Shrieking in triumph, Lillian dropped the bat and ran headlong toward the first sanctuary post, rounding it and heading toward second. Out of the corner of her eye, she saw Daisy hurtling across the field to scoop up the ball, and in nearly the same motion, throwing it to the nearest boy. Increasin #Quote by Lisa Kleypas
Catchers quotes by Jen Campbell
#11. These places are time machines, spaceships, story-makers, secret-keepers. They are dragon-tamers, dream-catchers, fact-finders, and safe places. They are full of infinite possibilities and tales worth taking home. #Quote by Jen Campbell
Catchers quotes by Gillian Zinser
#12. I'm in love with dream catchers. I collect them from every trip I take. #Quote by Gillian Zinser
Catchers quotes by Mike Piazza
#13. Yes, hard is good. When I was in high school, I spent a lot of time on my knees playing with balls. I guess it was only natural that I became a catcher. #Quote by Mike Piazza
Catchers quotes by J.D. Salinger
#14. Some game. If you get on the side where all the hot-shots are, then it's a game all right – I'll admit that. But if you get on the other side, where there aren't any hot-shots, then what's a game about it? #Quote by J.D. Salinger
Catchers quotes by Pete Rose
#15. I told him (Pete Rose, Jr.) who to watch. I said if you want to be a catcher, watch Johnny Bench. If you want to be a right-handed power hitter, watch Mike Schmidt. If you just want to be a hitter, watch me. #Quote by Pete Rose
Catchers quotes by Colson Whitehead
#16. The other patrollers were boys and men of bad character; the work attracted a type. In another country they would have been criminals, but this was America. #Quote by Colson Whitehead
Catchers quotes by Alan Lightman
#17. The catchers delight in the moment so frozen but soon discover that the nightingale expires, its clear flutelike song diminishes to silence, the trapped moment grows withered and without life. #Quote by Alan Lightman
Catchers quotes by J.D. Salinger
#18. I don't exactly know what I mean by that, but I mean it. #Quote by J.D. Salinger
Catchers quotes by J.D. Salinger
#19. Money always ends up making you blue. #Quote by J.D. Salinger
Catchers quotes by Patrisse Khan-Cullors
#20. Police, the literal progeny of slave catchers, meant harm to out community, and the race or class of any one officer, nor the good heart of an officer, could change that. No isolated acts of decency could wholly change an organization that became and institution that was created not to protect but to catch, control and kill us. #Quote by Patrisse Khan-Cullors
Catchers quotes by Olaf Stapledon
#21. Their pupils had at all costs to be fitted for life in a world careless of the spirit, careless of the true ends of living, and thoughtful only for the means. They must be equipped for the economic struggle. They must become good business men, good engineers and chemists, good typists and secretaries, good husband-catchers, even if the process prevented them irrevocably from becoming fully alive human beings. And so the population of the Western world was made up for the most part of strange thwarted creatures, skilled in this or that economic activity, but blind to the hope and the plight of the human race. For them the sum of duty was to play the economic game shrewdly and according to rule, to keep their wives in comfort and respectability, their husbands well fed and contented, to make their offspring into quick and relentless little gladiators for the arena of world-prices. One and all they ignored that the arena was not merely the market or the stock exchange, but the sand-multitudinous waste of stars. #Quote by Olaf Stapledon
Catchers quotes by Stephen Rodrick
#22. All backups take their cue from Elrod Hendricks, the patron saint of erstwhile catchers. #Quote by Stephen Rodrick
Catchers quotes by Cole Hamels
#23. When the catcher throws down a curveball, I'm like, 'Okay, I can definitely do that.' If I miss with it, I'm still ready to throw it again. #Quote by Cole Hamels
Catchers quotes by J.D. Salinger
#24. I am always saying "Glad to've met you" to somebody I'm not at all glad I met. If you want to stay alive, you have to say that stuff, though. #Quote by J.D. Salinger
Catchers quotes by Chloe Neill
#25. Mallory!" Catcher's voice boomed down the stairs.
Mallory fixed her mouth into a tight line and walked me into the kitchen. "Ignore it," she advised. "Much like the bubonic plague, it'll go away if you give it enough time."
"Mallory! You weren't finished! Get back in here!"
I glanced up the stairway. "You didn't leave him handcuffed to the bed or something, did you?"
"Jesus, no." I incrementally relaxed, until she continued. "My headboard's a single piece of wood. There's nothing to handcuff him to. #Quote by Chloe Neill
Catchers quotes by Don Cooper
#26. That whole thing about, 'Hey, ex-catchers are the best managers.' Listen, pitching coaches have some brains, too. Sometimes they're not all there, but sometimes they are. #Quote by Don Cooper
Catchers quotes by Johnny Bench
#27. A catcher and his body are like the outlaw and his horse. He's got to ride that nag till it drops. #Quote by Johnny Bench
Catchers quotes by Mark S. Halfon
#28. Mention in baseball's official record books, however, requires that catchers play a minimum of 156 games in a season, #Quote by Mark S. Halfon
Catchers quotes by J.D. Salinger
#29. If a body catch a body coming through the rye. #Quote by J.D. Salinger
Catchers quotes by Tom Hayden
#30. He likes to take strolls by himself and believes dog-catchers are friendly innkeepers who'll take care of a meal. He's gullible and has never learned to fight back against a ruthless world. #Quote by Tom Hayden
Catchers quotes by AVIS Viswanathan
#31. We must employ our intelligence wisely. Do you want to feed your fears or do you want to feed your Bliss? Some opportunities that will give us great joy may not always be financially rewarding. And some opportunities may be giving us only money and no joy. Invest in your Bliss. It will never fail you. #Quote by AVIS Viswanathan
Catchers quotes by Roy Oswalt
#32. The pitch would normally be low, but my ball starts carrying and stays on a sustained plane. Everyone always complains - 'that ball is low' - but then you go back and look at the tape, and it's right there. My catchers tell me, and the hitters tell me, that the ball stays true flight the last five or six feet. #Quote by Roy Oswalt
Catchers quotes by Michael Chabon
#33. The first and last duty of the lover of the game of baseball," Peavine's book began, "whether in the stands or on the field, is the same as that of the lover of life itself: to pay attention to it. When it comes to the position of catcher, as all but fools and shortstops will freely acknowledge, this solemn requirement is doubled. #Quote by Michael Chabon
Catchers quotes by Joe Garagiola
#34. The wind always seems to blow against catchers when they are running. #Quote by Joe Garagiola
Catchers quotes by Casey Stengel
#35. You have to have a catcher because if you don't you're likely to have a lot of passed balls. #Quote by Casey Stengel
Catchers quotes by Carrie Ryan
#36. I realize that this is the way the world works. If I could stop the spin, stop the rotation, I would have done so long ago. I would have stopped it the first moment that Catcher's lips met mine under the moon in the amusement park. I would have held us in that eternity forever. But of course everything presses forward, even as we dig our feet against the reality of it all. One even tumbles from the next out of our control and we are dragged along, helpless. #Quote by Carrie Ryan
Catchers quotes by Casey Stengel
#37. Canzeroni is the only defensive catcher that can't catch. #Quote by Casey Stengel
Catchers quotes by Tony La Russa
#38. The game has never seen a better catcher than YADIER MOLINA. #Quote by Tony La Russa
Catchers quotes by Thomas Wolfe
#39. Or there, in the clay-baked piedmont of the South, that lean and tan-faced boy who sprawls there in the creaking chair among admiring cronies before the open doorways of the fire department, and tells them how he pitched the team to shut-out victory to-day. What visions burn, what dreams possess him, seeker of the night? The packed stands of the stadium, the bleachers sweltering with their unshaded hordes, the faultless velvet of the diamond, unlike the clay-balked outfields down in Georgia. The mounting roar of eighty thousand voices and Gehrig coming up to bat, the boy himself upon the pitching mound, the lean face steady as a hound's; then the nod, the signal, and the wind-up, the rawhide arm that snaps and crackles like a whip, the small white bullet of the blazing ball, its loud report in the oiled pocket of the catcher's mitt, the umpire's thumb jerked upwards, the clean strike. #Quote by Thomas Wolfe
Catchers quotes by William Hazlitt
#40. The last sort I shall mention are verbal critics - mere word-catchers, fellows that pick out a word in a sentence and a sentence in a volume, and tell you it is wrong. The title of Ultra-Crepidarian critics has been given to a variety of this species. #Quote by William Hazlitt
Catchers quotes by Ron Luciano
#41. Like some cult religion that barely survives, there has always been at least one but rarely more than five or six devotees throwing the knuckleball in the big leagues ... Not only can't pitchers control it, hitters can't hit it, catchers can't catch it, coaches can't coach it and most pitchers can't learn it. The perfect pitch. #Quote by Ron Luciano
Catchers quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#42. To translate man back into nature, to become master over the many vain and overly enthusiastic interpretations and connotations that have so far been scrawled and painted over that eternal basic text of homo natura; to see to it that the human being henceforth stands before human beings as even today, hardened in the discipline of science, he stands before the rest of nature, with intrepid Oedipus eyes and sealed Odysseus ears, deaf to the siren songs of old metaphysical bird catchers who have been piping at him all too long, "you are more, you are higher, you are of a different origin" - that may be a strange and insane task, but it is a task - who would deny that? #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Catchers quotes by Jim Harbaugh
#43. People talk about cold weather and it'd be tough to catch balls. But the greatest catcher of all time, Michael Crabtree, catches everything. It's unbelievable. In the northern snowlands, down to the tropics' sunny scenes, he's catching the football. Where they throw a football, he'll be catching it. #Quote by Jim Harbaugh
Catchers quotes by Bob Uecker
#44. I used to soak my mitts in a bucket of water for about two days. Then I'd put a couple of baseballs in the pocket and wrap it up with a rubber band. Today you don't have to do that, because catchers' mitts are more like first baseman's gloves. #Quote by Bob Uecker
Catchers quotes by Carla Olson Gade
#45. ..this is your dream. Every moment, all of it. Even when you're tired or afraid. You're braver than you realize, and you will do this, and do it well." ~ Carla Olson Gade, The Shadow Catcher's Daughter #Quote by Carla Olson Gade
Catchers quotes by Judd Nelson
#46. Catcher in the Rye had a profound impact on me-the idea that we all have lots of dreams that are slowly being chipped away as we grow up. #Quote by Judd Nelson
Catchers quotes by J.D. Salinger
#47. I was trying to feel some kind of good-bye. I mean I've left schools and places I didn't even know I was leaving them. I hate that. I don't care if it's a sad good-bye or a bad good-bye, but when I leave a place I like to know I'm leaving it. If you don't you feel even worse. #Quote by J.D. Salinger
Catchers quotes by Casey Stengel
#48. Two hundred million Americans, and there ain't two good catchers among 'em. #Quote by Casey Stengel
Catchers quotes by Steve Hamilton
#49. Leon, no offense, but you don't exactly look like a hockey player."
"I told 'em I was a goalie. That's where they put the guy who can't skate, right? Just like in baseball when they put the worst player at catcher. #Quote by Steve Hamilton
Catchers quotes by Karen Russell
#50. Mr. Pappadakis smells like Just for Men peroxide dye and eucalyptus foot unguents. He has a face like a catcher's mitt. The whole thing puckers inward, drooping with the memory of some dropped fly ball. #Quote by Karen Russell
Catchers quotes by Bob Feller
#51. If you believe your catcher is intelligent and you know that he has considerable experience, it is a good thing to leave the game almost entirely in his hands. #Quote by Bob Feller
Catchers quotes by Kevin Towers
#52. There's just not a lot of inventory, and to find a shortstop or a catcher, or a centerfielder, that you think that could stay at those positions ... they're very hard to acquire. Sometimes you have to overpay for them, because of that lack of inventory. #Quote by Kevin Towers
Catchers quotes by John Gardner
#53. He could never forgive her for "cheating" on his father. His words, not hers. A child's word. "Selfish bitch," he'd called her once, he who knew nothing of selfishness or bitchery, no more than he knew of selflessness or whatever the opposite of bitchery was (sophrosyne?), knew only his own colossal ego, too self-centered even to understand why he couldn't simply dismiss her as evil and forget it. Sweet Christ how she hated him! But no. No more than she hated his father. It was past that. Caught in impossibilities, but knowing, at least, why she hated the part of herself she hated and why she could not escape, ever, for all the grinning cow-catchers and whistling boats and twinkling propellers in Christendom. Ah, Christendom! she thought. #Quote by John Gardner
Catchers quotes by Theo Epstein
#54. Josh Bard is a catcher with excellent defensive tools and someone ... whose best days are ahead of him. He's not coming off his best [offensive] season, but we still think there is some ceiling on him. He has outstanding makeup and calls a good game. [He's] a solid receiver with a plus arm, and he's going to be coming to camp with a chance to open some eyes. #Quote by Theo Epstein
Catchers quotes by Jennifer Echols
#55. John pointed at me to get my attention. He circled his finger in the air to tell me to wrap it up, then pointed to his cop car. I made a series of baseball catcher's signs. #Quote by Jennifer Echols
Catchers quotes by Tiffanie DeBartolo
#56. I'd never seen that look on another face before, had never identified it in another person. I'd only met with it in fiction. But everyone falls in love with Holden Caulfield when they're sixteen. They read Catcher in the Rye and don't feel so alone. #Quote by Tiffanie DeBartolo
Catchers quotes by Pete Rose
#57. A lot of these catchers don't understand that they are blocking the plate and they don't have the ball. You're not allowed to block the plate without the ball. #Quote by Pete Rose
Catchers quotes by Tim Wakefield
#58. It's nice to have a catcher who knows my mechanics, too. That way if I get into trouble he can stop it before I get out of control. #Quote by Tim Wakefield
Catchers quotes by AVIS Viswanathan
#59. Is there a right time to follow your Bliss? Not really. You postpone your Happiness, following your Bliss, only because you think you have a lot of time later in Life to do what you love doing. But the truth is that there is not enough time. Life comes with an expiry date; it is a one-time, limited-period offer. So, if you are not living your Life fully, happily, you are losing precious time. Simply, there is no better time than NOW to do what you love doing! #Quote by AVIS Viswanathan
Catchers quotes by Johnny Bench
#60. The catcher is in the middle of everything. He sees it best. #Quote by Johnny Bench
Catchers quotes by Jen Campbell
#61. We've always used stories as a way to pass on our history, as a way to explain things in life that we don't understand. We use them to make us feel connected to everything around us, and to help us escape to another time or place.
Bookshops across the world are full of these stories.
From travelling booksellers and undercover bookshops, to pop-up stalls and community hubs, walking into a good bookshop is like walking into another zone.These places are time machines, spaceships, story-makers, secret-keepers. They are dragon-tamers, dream-catchers, fact-finders and safe places. They are full of infinite possibilities, and tales worth taking home.
Because whether we're in the middle of the desert or in the heart of a city, on the top of a mountain or on an underground train: having good stories to keep us company can mean the whole world. #Quote by Jen Campbell
Catchers quotes by Jon Meacham
#62. I do not believe 'Newsweek' is the only catcher in the rye between democracy and ignorance, but I think we're one of them, and I don't think there are that many on the edge of that cliff. #Quote by Jon Meacham
