Swing hard, in case they throw the ball where you're swinging.

We wept, Brooklyn was a lovely place to hit. If you got a ball in the air, you had a chance to get it out. When they tore down Ebbets Field, they tore down a little piece of me.

I take full responsibilities for my actions. I also hope that my fans, especially those in Brooklyn, can accept my apology.

I think Jim Edmonds plays center field somewhat like how I played center field, and I like to watch him play it.

The field was even greener than my boy's mind had pictured it. In later years, friends of ours visited Ireland and said the grass there was plenty green all right, but that not even the Emerald Isle itself was as green as the grass that grew in Ebbets Field.

What a player does best, he should practice least. Practice is for problems.

He was a very charming man, ... It was a pleasure to have him in our school district.

My high salary for one season was forty-six thousand dollars and a Cadillac.

Man, if I made one million dollars I would come in at six in the morning, sweep the stands, wash the uniforms, clean out the office, manage the team and play the games.
