Quote of the Day
Do what you love to do and give it your very best. Whether it's business or baseball, or the theater, or any field. If you don't love what you're doing and you can't give it your best, get out of it. Life is too short. You'll be an old man before you know it.

I'd rather be a good person off the field than a good baseball player on the field.
You can't sit on a lead and run a few plays into the line and just kill the clock. You've got to throw the ball over the damn plate and five the other man his chance. That's why baseball is the greatest game of them all.

Little League baseball is a very good thing because it keeps the parents off the streets.
There are three types of baseball players: Those who make it happen, those who watch it happen and those who wonder what happens.
Baseball is like driving, it's the one who gets home safely that counts.
If you have a bad day in baseball, and start thinking about it, you will have 10 more.
Baseball is a game of race, creed, and color. The race is to first base. The creed is the rules of the game. The color? Well, the home team wears white uniforms, and the visiting team wears gray.

For me, baseball is the most nourishing game outside of literature. They both are re-tellings of human experience.
