Quote of the day

There is a power to both patience and persistence. Baseball is a game of life. It’s not perfect, but it feels like it is. That’s the magic of it. We are responsible for giving it the respect that it deserves. Our sport is part of the American soul, and it’s ours to borrow just for while, to take care of it for a time, and then pass it on to the next generation.

~Joe Torre, from his 2014 Hall of Fame induction speech

  1. I still think of Joe Torre as a catcher. Then as a manager and finally as an HQ guy. He is a ballplayer and the game’s HOF has plenty of room for a guy like him.

  2. Wow, I don’t think I’ve ever heard a more beautiful statement on the game of baseball.

  3. Bill says:

    Somewhere, Terence Mann is smiling. πŸ™‚
