Remarkable Center Fielders quotations
The pitcher wound up and he flang the ball at the batter.
The batter swang and missed. The pitcher flang the ball again and this time the batter connected. He hit a high fly right to the center fielder. The center fielder was all set to catch the ball, but at the last minute his eyes were blound by the sun and he dropped it.
He (Bill Terry) once hit a ball between my legs so hard that my center-fielder caught it on the fly backing up against the wall.
Oh, to be a center fielder, a center fielder- and nothing more
I attribute being a good center fielder to many things, but being outside with friends as a kid, running around and racing, that was a big part of it.
What we're going to do is use spring training as sort of a feeling-out process for Phil and Preston and our other outfielders. It gives us a lot of comfort to know that you've got a pure center fielder like Preston. But he's also so athletic, he can come in and play either corner and we'll feel very comfortable with it.
