It ain't over till it's over.

Yogi Berra, athlete

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, athlete

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.

George Will, journalist

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

Yogi Berra, athlete

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.

Catherine Bell, model

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

Reggie Jackson, athlete

If you put a baseball and other toys in front of a baby, he'll pick up a baseball in preference to the others.

Tris Speaker, athlete

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.

Casey Stengel, athlete

Watching baseball under the lights is like observing dogs indoors, at a pedigree show. In both instances, the environment is too controlled to suit the species.

Melvin Maddocks,

Baseball is a simple game. If you have good players and if you keep them in the right frame of mind then the manager is a success.

Sparky Anderson, coach

People who write about spring training not being necessary have never tried to throw a baseball.

Rogers Hornsby, athlete

Why are baseball managers the only coaches who dress up like the players?

Jay Mohr, actor

The key to winning baseball games is pitching, fundamentals, and three run homers.

It's a weird scene. You win a few baseball games and all of a sudden you're surrounded by reporters and TV men with cameras asking you about Vietnam and race relations.

Vida Blue, athlete

Baseball hasn't been the national pastime for many years now - no sport is. The national pastime, like it or not, is watching television.

Bob Greene, journalist

Awards mean a lot, but they don't say it all. The people in baseball mean more to me than statistics.

Ernie Banks, athlete

Is it in the best interest of baseball to sell beer in the ninth inning? Probably not. The rule has got to be more clearly defined. And then some process should be set up where the judge is not also the appeals judge.

George Steinbrenner, businessman

When I was real young I wanted to play baseball. I really loved playing center field, but that was never anything I was really ever that good at. I played up until I was in ninth grade.

Walt Whitman, poet

Baseball is what we were, and football is what we have become.

Bill Veeck, businessman

I'm a baseball freak.

Dee Dee Myers, public servant

Individual statistics, plate time and everything tend to come, but the most enjoyment I get out of baseball is actually winning.

Mike Quade, coach

Baseball is the only field of endeavor where a man can succeed three times out of ten and be considered a good performer.

Ken Caminiti, athlete

James Caan, actor

I wanted to definitely be a musician or a good preacher or a heck of a baseball player. I couldn't play ball too good - I hurt my finger, and I stopped that. I couldn't preach, and well, all I had left was getting into the music thing.

Do what you love to do and give it your very best. Whether it's business or baseball, or the theater, or any field. If you don't love what you're doing and you can't give it your best, get out of it. Life is too short. You'll be an old man before you know it.

Al Lopez, coach

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, coach

I played baseball in college but I didn't identify with the jocks, I was in my own little world .

Nicholas Brendon, actor

Honestly, I'm not a big fan of baseball.

Kids don't learn the fundamentals of baseball at the games anymore.

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, journalist

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, athlete

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, athlete

Now there's three things you can do in a baseball game: You can win or you can lose or it can rain.

Casey Stengel, athlete

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?'

Robin Williams, comedian

In baseball, you don't know nothing.

Yogi Berra, athlete

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.

Cory Lidle, athlete

There are only five things you can do in baseball - run, throw, catch, hit and hit with power.

If you're a singer you lose your voice. A baseball player loses his arm. A writer gets more knowledge, and if he's good, the older he gets, the better he writes.

Mickey Spillane, author

Baseball has the great advantage over cricket of being sooner ended.

George Bernard Shaw, dramatist

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, athlete

Some say our national pastime is baseball. Not me. It's gossip.

Alvin Dark, athlete

In this game of baseball, you live by the sword and die by it. You hit and get hit. Remember that.

Alvin Dark, athlete

Whoever wants to know the heart and mind of America had better learn baseball, the rules and realities of the game - and do it by watching first some high school or small-town teams.

Baseball is like driving, it's the one who gets home safely that counts.

Tommy Lasorda, coach

John McGraw,

If you don't like the way the Atlanta Braves are playing then you don't like baseball.

Chuck Tanner, athlete

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

I was showing early symptoms of becoming a professional baseball man. I was lying to the press.

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, musician
