More baseball…

11 Jul

In keeping with my baseball theme and in light of today’s All-Star Game… I give you these:

“Baseball players are smarter than football players.  How often do you see a baseball team penalized for too many players on the field?”

  ~ Jim Boulton

 

“The problem with being a good sport is that you have to lose to prove it.”

  ~ Anonymous

 

“Trying to sneak a fastball past Hank Aaron is like trying to sneak the sunrise past a rooster.”

  ~ Joe Adcock

 

“The next best thing to winning is losing!  At least you’ve been in the race.”

  ~ Nellie Hershey Smith

 

“There are only two seasons ~ Winter and Baseball.”

  ~ Bill Veeck

 

“Always play a game with somebody, never against them.  Always win a game, never beat an opponent.”

  ~ Andrew Bailey

 

“I never threw an illegal pitch.  The trouble is, once in a while I toss one that ain’t never been seen by this generation.”

  ~ Satchel Page

 

“Baseball is a slow, sluggish game, with frequent and trivial interruptions, offering the spectator many opportunities to reflect at leisure upon the situation on the field:  This is what a fan loves most about the game.”

  ~ Edward Abbey

 

  And finally (for now anyway)…

“If I were playing third base and my mother were rounding third with the run that was going to beat us, I’d trip her.  Oh, I’d pick her up and brush her off and say “I’m sorry Mom,” but nobody beats me.”

  ~ Leo Durocher
