I guess I had two strikes against me when I came into the world….my father back in Nebraska was a hard drinker before me, and so was my grandfather….sure I tried to stop. I just couldn’t.

A boy cannot begin playing ball too early. I might almost say that while he is still creeping on all fours, he should have a bouncing rubber ball.
One of the beautiful things about baseball is the history.
Enjoy your sweat because hard work doesn’t guarantee success, but without it you don’t have a chance.
I didn’t understand anything about playing baseball. I started playing, and it was enjoyable. Most of my life, I played with older people on my team, in my league. I learned a lot about life. Every day in my life, I learned something new from somebody.
To the people out there, baseball is a simple sport. But it is complex. It is never easy.
I’m thankful God has given us the technology where we can see each other through Skype on the computer. It’s not the same thing, but at least we can see each other. Imagine the time before when that wasn’t available and people had to go defend our country. It’s really hard. I go two weeks without seeing my family and I go crazy.
I could probably throw harder if I wanted, but why? When they’re in a jam, a lot of pitchers…try to throw harder. Me, I try to locate better.
When I was a young boy I used to play baseball in my back yard or in the street with my brothers or the neighborhood kids. We used broken bats and plastic golf balls and played for hours and hours.
I don’t feel right unless I have a sport to play.
