It ain't over till it's over.

Yogi Berra

Baseball is a red-blooded sport for red-blooded men. It's no pink tea, and mollycoddles had better stay out. It's a struggle for supremacy, a survival of the fittest.

Ty Cobb

Baseball is ninety percent mental and the other half is physical.

Yogi Berra

Baseball, it is said, is only a game. True. And the Grand Canyon is only a hole in Arizona. Not all holes, or games, are created equal.

I've always been like that. I was a tomboy when I was a kid, so I was always playing baseball and basketball and football and stuff as a kid with the boys.

A baseball swing is a very finely tuned instrument. It is repetition, and more repetition, then a little more after that.

Being with a woman all night never hurt no professional baseball player. It's staying up all night looking for a woman that does him in.

Jay Mohr

Baseball happens to be a game of cumulative tension but football, basketball and hockey are played with hand grenades and machine guns.

Ryan Sypek

The Statue of Liberty is no longer saying, 'Give me your poor, your tired, your huddled masses.' She's got a baseball bat and yelling, 'You want a piece of me?'

I played football in high school, I played baseball when I was younger, things like that, but I think it was the passion I had for track where you want to do an individual sport and be the best, I think - there's nothing that can replace that.

Tyson Gay

Major League Baseball is a national institution and we take our responsibilities seriously when it comes to how the game affects the lives of American youth.

Bud Selig

You can go up in the air and everything is gone. You know, you don't think about baseball. You don't think about anything. It's just something that takes you away from everyday life. I love being in a plane and looking down to see traffic on the freeway.

Baseball is a public trust. Players turn over, owners turn over and certain commissioners turn over. But baseball goes on.

Sparky Anderson

Every player should be accorded the privilege of at least one season with the Chicago Cubs. That's baseball as it should be played - in God's own sunshine. And that's really living.

Alvin Dark

Owners, the way they blackballed me from baseball, the way they used me, in a sense, and then the way they wanted to send a signal to the other players, saying, you know, we're going to get Jose Canseco out of the game. This is a cue or a message for you other guys to stop using steroids because the owners lost total control of the steroid use.

Jose Canseco

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

Jim Bouton

Baseball is a game where a curve is an optical illusion, a screwball can be a pitch or a person, stealing is legal and you can spit anywhere you like except in the umpire's eye or on the ball.

James Patrick Murray

I could've played basketball, but my mind was on baseball. I didn't know what I was in for. In high school it was a matter of talent. No one told you what to do.

Jim Bouton

Nowadays, they have more trouble packing hair dryers than baseball equipment.

Bob Feller

You can't sit on a lead and run a few plays into the line and just kill the clock. You've got to throw the ball over the damn plate and five the other man his chance. That's why baseball is the greatest game of them all.

Earl Weaver

What you have to remember is that baseball isn't a week or a month but a season - and a season is a long time.

Chuck Tanner

Why is it there are so many nice guys interested in baseball? Not me, I was a real bastard when I played.

Many baseball fans look upon an umpire as a sort of necessary evil to the luxury of baseball, like the odor that follows an automobile.

Christy Mathewson

Ted Williams

The good rising fastball is the best pitch in baseball.

Tom Seaver

I'm not like a 90-mph fastball kind of guy, but I can hit 70 on radar gun. I hit 70 one time on a radar guy at one of those pitch-and-throw kind of things. I have a pretty good arm for somebody who's not a baseball player.

Ben Gibbard

Every day I went to the ballpark in Yankee Stadium as well as on the road people were on my back. The last six years in the American League were mental hell for me. I was drained of all my desire to play baseball.
