Catcher Quotations

No baseball pitcher would be worth a darn without a catcher who could handle the hot fastball.
Casey Stengel

There is only one Mariano Rivera. There won't be another person who will come along and do what he did. No one does it like him. It was an honor to catch him and play alongside him for as long as I did. He made my job as a catcher so much easier. Mariano is a special person and obviously a special player.
Jorge Posada

A catcher must want to catch. He must make up his mind that it isn't the terrible job it is painted, and that he isn't going to say every day, 'Why, oh why with so many other positions in baseball did I take up this one.'
Bill Dickey

A catcher and his body are like the outlaw and his horse. He's got to ride that nag till it drops.
Johnny Bench

When I was 15 years old, I used to actually dream I was pitching in Yankee Stadium. Bill Dickey was my catcher.
Tommy Lasorda
