There couldn't have been a better Hollywood ending for us. It's beyond baseball. It's rooting for your family.
Any one game in baseball doesn't tell you that much, just as any one poll doesn't tell you that much.
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.'
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.
I was hitting .360 when I was diagnosed. I didn't forget how to play while I was recovering. I don't know if the cancer is gone for good. I don't think anyone ever knows, but no one is going to steal my joy for as along as I'm able to play baseball.
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.
Baseball has better opening days and All-Star Games than the N.F.L. does. Ours stink.
I'm a sports-watcher. I played football and baseball, coached baseball. So I watch those things.
Baseball is not what I love. It's my job.
Doctors tell me I have the body of a thirty year old. I know I have the brain of a fifteen year old. If you've got both, you can play baseball.
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.
So, baseball is probably more physical of the two mentally.
Trip Hawkins - and this was the early 1980s - was saying there's going to be a day when everyone has a computer and they're going to want to do more on it, including playing games. So he started up a company, EA Sports, and he was going to have three games, football, basketball and baseball. So I was the football game.
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
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.
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.
I think that baseball games are like soap operas. If you watch five in a row, you know enough to get hooked.
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?'
Major league baseball is about the history of the game. Baseball history is so important. It's so much more than money.
One-third of all professional baseball players come from Latin America, and Sosa is following role models such as the late Roberto Clemente, a Puerto Rican, from whom he adopted the No. 21. Now he is a model for others.
So you have to be more mentally focused in baseball.
Nowadays, they have more trouble packing hair dryers than baseball equipment.
Preschoolers have a way of grabbing your attention. Mine help me not to be a baseball player at home.
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.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Martin Luther King, Jr.
