I'd never heard of colon cancer. Baseball wasn't even important to me. I have a wife and two girls. That's what was important. The doctors told me and all I could say was, 'When are we going to get this thing out?'
I always wanted to do a baseball book; I love baseball. The problem is that a very large part of my following is in non-baseball playing countries.
Just as the common law derives from ancient precedents - judges' decisions - rather than statutes, baseball's codes are the game's distilled mores. Their unchanged purpose is to show respect for opponents and the game. In baseball, as in the remainder of life, the most important rules are unwritten. But not unenforced.
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.
When you go to watch a baseball game, when you go to watch an NBA game, when you watch an NFL game, when you go to watch movies, the offering that those arenas are doing foodwise is 'all the hot dogs you can eat'; all the French fries you can eat; for $20 you can eat 20 hot dogs.
Jose Andres Puerta
The best example of how impossible it will be for Major League Baseball to crack down on steroids is the fact that baseball and the media are still talking about the problem as 'steroids.'
Traditionally, baseball punishes preening. In a society increasingly tolerant of exhibitionism, it is splendid when a hitter is knocked down because in his last at bat he lingered at the plate to admire his home run.
Baseball is a universe as large as life itself, and therefore all things in life, whether good or bad, whether tragic or comic, fall within its domain.
Baseball has changed dramatically since I began my tenure with the Yankees.
Baseball is a team sport played by individuals for themselves.
In regards to steroids, I think we're all to blame, all of baseball. I never realized how far-reaching this problem has been.
Major league baseball is about the history of the game. Baseball history is so important. It's so much more than money.
My father loved baseball and he cultivated my talent. I don't think he ever had any doubt in his mind that I would play professional baseball someday.
Baseball wasn't easy for me.
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.
In baseball you have terrific data and you can be a lot more creative with it.
Baseball is dull only to dull minds.
Whoever wants to know the heart and mind of America had better learn baseball, the rules and realities of the game - and do it by watching first some high school or small-town teams.
I think that baseball games are like soap operas. If you watch five in a row, you know enough to get hooked.
I have to play baseball to make me happy. I have to be an athlete. But when it's all said and done, I'll be a normal father. A normal-type house man.
Always wanted to be a Major League player. Loved baseball. Followed it. Loved to play. Plus, I could always hit.
The money I saved during baseball was probably all gone. I'm tapped out.
And my father didn't have money for me to go to college. And at that particular time they didn't have black quarterbacks, and I don't think I could have made it in basketball, because I was only 5' 11". So I just picked baseball.
America brought us the baseball cap; it's one of my favorite hats.
Before, if I wasn't in baseball, I wanted to become a doctor.
