— Bobby Jones

Don't bunt. Aim out of the ball park. Aim for the company of immortals.

Police on my drawers I had to pause 40 ounce in my lap And it's freezing my balls

There are players that try to imitate others, but at free-kick time it is a personal thing. Every person has their own technique and routine when they stand over the ball and I have mine, I am not trying to copy anyone.

Niggas pray and pray on my downfall, But every time I hit the ground I bounce up like round ball

In the best of times, our days are numbered anyway.

So it would be a crime against nature for any generation to take the world crisis so solemnly that it put off enjoying those things for which we were designed in the first place: the opportunity to do good work, to enjoy friends, to fall in love, to hit a ball, and to bounce a baby.

Some day I'm going to have to stand before God, and if He asks me why I didn't let that [Jackie] Robinson fellow play ball, I don't think saying 'because of the color of his skin' would be a good enough answer.

If you don't have the balls to brake late, that's your problem.

Standing here with 19 championships is something I never thought would happen. I went on a court just with a ball and a racket and with a hope.

People talk about cold weather and it'd be tough to catch balls.

But the greatest catcher of all time, Michael Crabtree, catches everything. It's unbelievable. In the northern snowlands, down to the tropics' sunny scenes, he's catching the football. Where they throw a football, he'll be catching it.

I learned to approach racing like a game of billiards.

If you bash the ball too hard, you get nowhere. As you handle the cue properly, you drive with more finesse.

During my 18 years I came to bat almost 10,000 times.

I struck out about 1,700 times and walked maybe 1,800 times. You figure a ballplayer will average about 500 at-bats a season. That means I played 7 years without ever hitting the ball.

Football is like a religion to me. I worship the ball, and I treat it like a god. Too many players think of a football as something to kick. They should be taught to caress it and to treat it like a precious gem.

I seemed to vow to myself that some day I would go to the region of ice and snow and go on and on till I came to one of the poles of the earth, the end of the axis upon which this great round ball turns.

I became a good pitcher when I stopped trying to make them miss the ball and started trying to make them hit it.

Being a good teammate is when you try to sprint down a ball that everyone thinks is going out of bounds. But you go after it anyways and you get it.

Success is not just the crowning moment, the spiking of the ball in the end zone or the raising of the flag on the summit. It is the whole process of reaching for a goal and, sometimes, it begins with failure.

I have balls the size of grapefruits and come this Sunday, you'll be spitting out the seeds.

The true harbinger of spring is not crocuses or swallows returning to Capistrano, but the sound of the bat on the ball.

Leadership is getting players to believe in you.

If you tell a teammate you're ready to play as tough as you're able to, you'd better go out there and do it. Players will see right through a phony. And they can tell when you're not giving it all you've got. Leadership is diving for a loose ball, getting the crowd involved, getting other players involved. It's being able to take it as well as dish it out. That's the only way you're going to get respect from the players.

One travels like a golf ball, hopping from green to green.
