The Mets have found ways of losing that I never knew existed.
Casey Stengel

Baseball provides escape. Furthermore, there is no other place in our society that I know of in which the perimeter of play and the rules are clearly defined and known to everyone - in which justice is absolutely equal and sure. Three strikes, you're out. I don't care if you hire Edward Bennett Williams to defend you; three strikes, you're still out. Baseball is an island of stability in an unstable world.
Bill Veeck

Players have been bought, sold and exchanged as though they were sheep instead of American citizens.
John Montgomery Ward

They give you a round bat and they throw you a round ball and they tell you to hit it square.
Willie Stargell
Also attributed to Hank Sauer, Pete Rose, Ted Williams, others.

All the bushleague batters
Are left to die
On the diamond.
In the stands
The home crowd scatters
For the turnstiles.
Neil Young

In the great department store of life, baseball is the toy department.
Author Unknown

No game in the world is as tidy and dramatically neat as baseball, with cause and effect, crime and punishment, motive and result, so cleanly defined.
Paul Gallico

There are three things in my life which I really love: God, my family, and baseball. The only problem - once baseball season starts, I change the order around a bit.
Al Gallagher

A baseball game is simply a nervous breakdown divided into nine innings.
Earl Wilson

I see great things in baseball. It's our game - the American game. It will take our people out-of-doors, fill them with oxygen, give them a larger physical stoicism. Tend to relieve us from being a nervous, dyspeptic set. Repair these losses, and be a blessing to us.
Walt Whitman

Back then, my idol was Bugs Bunny, because I saw a cartoon of him playing ball - you know, the one where he plays every position himself with nobody else on the field but him? Now that I think of it, Bugs is still my idol. You have to love a ballplayer like that.
Nomar Garciaparra

I don't want to play golf. When I hit a ball, I want someone else to go chase it.
Rogers Hornsby

With those who don't give a damn about baseball, I can only sympathize. I do not resent them. I am even willing to concede that many of them are physically clean, good to their mothers and in favor of world peace. But while the game is on, I can't think of anything to say to them.
Art Hill

That's baseball, and it's my game. Y' know, you take your worries to the game, and you leave 'em there. You yell like crazy for your guys. It's good for your lungs, gives you a lift, and nobody calls the cops. Pretty girls, lots of 'em.
Humphrey Bogart

Good pitching will beat good hitting any time, and vice versa.
Bob Veale

Every hitter likes fastballs, just like everybody likes ice cream. But you don't like it when someone's stuffing it into you by the gallon. That's what it feels like when Nolan Ryan's thrown balls by you.
Reggie Jackson

Strikeouts are boring - besides that, they're fascist. Throw some ground balls. More democratic.
Bull Durham (movie)

Baseball players are smarter than football players. How often do you see a baseball team penalized for too many men on the field?
Jim Bouton

Nolan Ryan is pitching much better now that he has his curve ball straightened out.
Joe Garagiola

I don't care how long you've been around, you'll never see it all.
Bob Lemon

Poets are like baseball pitchers. Both have their moments. The intervals are the tough things.
Robert Frost

You can't steal second base and keep one foot on first.
Author Unknown

Say this much for big league baseball - it is beyond question the greatest conversation piece ever invented in America.
Bruce Catton

The charm of baseball is that, dull as it may be on the field, it is endlessly fascinating as a rehash.
Jim Murray

It breaks your heart. It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in spring, when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone.
A. Bartlett Giamatti
The Green Fields of the Mind, Yale Alumni Magazine, November 1977.

The designated hitter rule is like letting someone else take Wilt Chamberlain's free throws.
Rick Wise

Baseball is almost the only orderly thing in a very unorderly world. If you get three strikes, even the best lawyer in the world can't get you off.
Bill Veeck

Wives of ballplayers, when they teach their children their prayers, should instruct them how to say: "God bless Mommy, God bless Daddy, God bless Babe Ruth. Babe Ruth has upped Daddy's paycheck by fifteen to forty percent."
Waite Hoyt

The difference between the old ballplayer and the new ballplayer is the jersey. The old ballplayer cared about the name on the front. The new ballplayer cares about the name on the back.
Steve Garvey

Trying to sneak a pitch past Hank Aaron is like trying to sneak a sunrise past a rooster.
Curt Simmons
