Some of my finest memories are from my time at the University of Texas. College baseball, I love it.
There are more people killed with baseball bats and hammers than are killed with guns.
I never want to sit out. I want to play baseball games.
The worst drivers are women in people carriers, men in white vans and anyone in a baseball cap. That's just about everyone.
Is it in the best interest of baseball to sell beer in the ninth inning? Probably not. The rule has got to be more clearly defined. And then some process should be set up where the judge is not also the appeals judge.
On matters of race, on matters of decency, baseball should lead the way.
A. Bartlett Giamatti
The student body was huge at UT and you had to mature pretty quick, very quick actually. I enjoyed it and it helped me a lot in my life in general - not only in the classroom but on the baseball field as well.
I could describe my career in two words: who knew. I was on the path to becoming a professional baseball player, but I got injured in college. When I decided to move out to L.A. to try acting, nobody was betting on me, not even my family.
Baseball is one of the most beautiful games. It is. It is a very Zen-like game.
Finally, for all of us but a lucky few, the dream of playing big-time baseball is relinquished so we can get on with grown-up things.
Tennis was always there for me, which was lucky. I would go play baseball, basketball, football, hang with my brother, do whatever, and at the end of the day I'd come back and say, 'Hey, Mom, would you hit 15 minutes worth of balls with me?'

I've got a lot of years to live after baseball and I would like to live them with the complete use of my body.

That's what Major League Baseball's steroid scandal was all about, the hidden harm in competitive sports that sends the wrong message to the young.
