Reading isn't good for a ballplayer. Not good for his eyes. If my eyes went bad even a little bit I couldn't hit home runs. So I gave up reading.
Gee, its lonesome in the outfield. It's hard to keep awake with nothing to do.
I learned early to drink beer, wine and whiskey. And I think I was about 5 when I first chewed tobacco.
As soon as I got out there I felt a strange relationship with the pitcher's mound. It was as if I'd been born out there. Pitching just felt like the most natural thing in the world. Striking out batters was easy.
Never let the fear of striking out get in your way.
Every strike brings me closer to the next home run.
Yesterday's home runs don't win today's games.
The way a team plays as a whole determines its success. You may have the greatest bunch of individual stars in the world, but if they don't play together, the club won't be worth a dime.
You just can't beat the person who never gives up.
Baseball was, is and always will be to me the best game in the world.
