"I was a baseball player, I taught baseball, and all of a sudden I was in the business world. Now I used the baseball world to talk about their product. Not too much, just enough to keep going. Just be yourself and you'll never have a problem. That's what I did"

"Defense to me is the key to playing baseball"
"I think I was the best baseball player I ever saw"

"No baseball pitcher would be worth a darn without a catcher who could handle the hot fastball"
"Now there's three things you can do in a baseball game: You can win or you can lose or it can rain"
"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"
"If you're playing baseball and thinking about managing, you're crazy. You'd be better off thinking about being an owner"
"Opera in English is, in the main, just about as sensible as baseball in Italian"
"Some say our national pastime is baseball. Not me. It's gossip"
"Baseball changes through the years. It gets milder"
"Baseball was, is and always will be to me the best game in the world"
"If it wasn't for baseball, I'd be in either the penitentiary or the cemetery"
"When I was coming up, I just wanted to play baseball and I'm doing what I love to do most. How can I feel pressure doing what I love to do?"
"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"
"Baseball is a red-blooded sport for red-blooded men. It's no pink tea, and mollycoddles had better stay out"
"Right now I like baseball, hockey and tennis players. And horseback riders"
"No, I've never played baseball in my life"
"I had a great time with baseball growing up. I was lucky to grow up with it and to learn"
"And of course in America you've got American football and baseball and all those other ball games, soccer has become a little niche that the women have kind of filled"
"I wanted to be a professional baseball player"
"I wasn't ever good enough to be on the baseball team and that sort of stuff"
