Because physical action is stressed in all spectator sports, some potential fans may be bored by the prospect of watching bodies run around on a playing surface. But in truth, sports - like all human endeavors - have both a mental and physical component, and the spectator who doesn't understand what's going on in the players' heads is missing the point of the game. This is nowhere truer than in baseball, where the brute physical action in a three-hour game probably totals less than thirty minutes, but where the intervening time is solidly packed with intrigue, as the strategy changes from pitch to pitch.
Thomas A. Bowden

If people don't want to come out to the ball park, nobody's gonna stop 'em.
Yogi Berra

Pair off in threes.
Yogi Berra
Instruction to his players for a spring training drill.

We (San Francisco) have football weather during baseball season, and baseball weather during football season.
Herb Caen

Baseball is the only major sport that appears backward in a mirror.
George Carlin

The appeal of baseball is intimately wrapped up with one's youth. Baseball is very much about being young again in a harmless way. And one of its core appeals is to remind America of a time when it was young. You fly over a major city at night in the summer and suddenly you'll see that green oasis that reminds everybody of baseball's basic mythology: we come from a rural, simpler America. What's home? Home is longing for when you were happy because you were younger.
A. Bartlett Giamatti

You can't think and hit at the same time.
Yogi Berra

There is no crying in baseball.
Tom Hanks

You can't sweep if you don't win the first game, and it's tougher to win two out of three if you lose the first one.
Todd Helton

Your chances of winning, I've got to believe are really, really small when you score one run in 18 innings.
Clint Hurdle

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

Losing streaks are funny. If you lose at the beginning, you got off to a bad start. If you lose in the middle of the season, you're in a slump. If you lose at the end, you're choking.
Gene Mauch

Any manager who can't get along with a .400 hitter is crazy.
Joe McCarthy
Yankee Manager.

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

Opera in English is, in the main, just about as sensible as baseball in Italian.
Henry Louis Mencken

Driving a car is like playing baseball. The object in both is to get home safely.
Joe Moore

Willie Mays' glove is where triples go to die.
Jim Murray

Nostalgia is baseball's foundation. It is a game built on the shoulders of heroes and champions who became legends with the passing of time.
Mike Nalepa

There is a soothing rhythm to it all, pitch by pitch, inning by inning. Baseball is a world of order, interupted by brief, breathtaking moments of chaos, where memories and heroes can be made. It has unlimited potential. It can be ugly one moment and beautiful the next. It is part play, part profanity and part poetry. And really, what is more American than that?
Mike Nalepa

Careers end with a ground ball to shortstop, not with a home run.
Bull Durham (movie)
Script Ron Shelton.

Finding good players is easy. Getting them to play as a team is another story.
Casey Stengel

Things could be worse. Suppose your errors were counted and published everyday, like those of a baseball player.
Author Unknown

The only thing worse than a Mets game is a Mets double header.
Casey Stengel

America's game: has the snap, go, fling, of the American atmosphere - belongs as much to our institutions, fits into them as significantly, as our constitutions, laws: is just as important in the sum total of our historic life.
Walt Whitman

The key to being a good manager is keeping the people who hate me away from those who are still undecided.
Casey Stengel

Some people are born on third base and go through life thinking they hit a triple.
Barry Switzer

It's hard to win a pennant, but it's harder losing one.
Chuck Tanner

Oh, somewhere in this favored land the sun is shining bright; The band is playing somewhere, and somewhere hearts are light, And somewhere men are laughing, and little children shout; But there is no joy in Mudville mighty Casey has struck out.
Ernest L. Thayer

"There was once a legendary baseball player," said (John F.) Kennedy. "He never failed to hit when at bat and never dropped a ball. Grounders never dribbled between his legs. He threw with unerring accuracy. In the field and on the bases he had the speed and grace of a leopard. He never tired or missed a signal. In fact, he would have been one of the all-time greats except for one thing - no one was ever able to get him to put down his beer and hot dog and come out of the press box to play."
Morris K. Udall

The most beautiful thing in the world is a ballpark filled with people.
Bill Veeck
