Baseball Quotes

Life will always throw you curves, just keep fouling them off... the right pitch will come, but when it does, be prepared to run the bases

Rick Maksian

One of the beautiful things about baseball is that every once in a while you come into a situation where you want to, and where you have to, reach down and prove something

Nolan Ryan

It ain't over till it's over.

Yogi Berra

Winners make goals, losers make excuses

Joe Garagiola

You owe it to yourself to be the best you can possible be in baseball and in life

Pete Rose

When you think about it, a home run is a mistake. The idea is to hit the ball hard, on a line, so the defense can't react to it. Hit it high in the air, which is how most home runs are hit, and most of the time it will be caught. It's a mistake

Matt Williams

Hank Aaron

I always thought that record would stand until it was broken

Yogi Berra

Baseball has so much history and tradition. You can respect it, or you can exploit it for profit, but it's still being made all over the place, all the time.

Michael Lewis

I have explained many times that I am, by Profession, a Gambler -- not some jock-sniffing nerd or a hired human squawk-box with the brain of a one-cell animal. No. That would be your average career sportswriter -- and, more specifically, a full-time Baseball writer.

Hunter S. Thompson
