Baseball Quotations

To celebrate the World Series, a few good baseball quotes are in order.  Maybe you can work one of these into a speech.

“Statistics are to baseball what a flaky crust is to Mom’s apple pie.”  (Harry Reasoner) 

“Baseball is not a team sport.  It is more a series of concerts by the artists.” (Jim Murray) 

“Baseball, it is said, is only a game.  True.  And the Grand Canyon is only a hole in Arizona.”  (George F. Will) 

“The game’s not over until it’s over.”  (Yogi Berra) 

“A baseball field is so covered with statistics that nothing can happen there without leaving its tracks in the records.  There may well be no other facet of American life, the activities of laboratory rats excepted, which is so extensively categorized, counted and recorded.”  (Bill James) 

“Fans don’t boo nobodies.”  (Reggie Jackson) 

“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) 

“Baseball is played on the fields of the imagination as much as on the diamond.”  (Elinor Nauen) 

“I see great things in baseball.  It’s our game – the American game.”  (Walt Whitman) 

“You don’t save a pitcher for tomorrow.  Tomorrow it may rain.”  (Leo Durocher)
