Baseball's future? Bigger and bigger, better and better! No question about it, it's the greatest game there is!

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

There has always been a saying in baseball that you can't make a hitter, but I think you can improve a hitter. More than you can improve a fielder. More mistakes are made hitting than in any other part of the game.

There's only one way to become a hitter. Go up to the plate and get mad. Get mad at yourself and mad at the pitcher.

We tell lies when we are afraid... afraid of what we don't know, afraid of what others will think, afraid of what will be found out about us. But every time we tell a lie, the thing that we fear grows stronger.

If you don't think too good, don't think too much.

I've found that you don't need to wear a necktie if you can hit.

Baseball gives every American boy a chance to excel, not just to be as good as someone else but to be better than someone else. This is the nature of man and the name of the game.

Hitting is fifty percent above the shoulders.
