" Baseball is almost the only orderly thing, in a very unorderly world.

Bob Feller, Cleveland Indians

"The day Custer lost at the Little Big Horn,
the Chicago White Sox beat the Cincinnati Red Legs 3-2.
Both teams wore knickers, and they're still wearing them today."

Frank "Home Run" Baker

"Well, I believe in the soul.....the cock.....the pussy.....
the small of a woman's back...the hangin' curveball....high fiber.....
good scotch...that the novels of Susan Sontag are self indulgent over-rated crap....
I believe Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone.
I believe there ought to be a constitutional amendment
outlawing astro-turf and the designated hitter.
I believe in the sweet spot, soft-core pornography,
opening your presents Christmas morning rather than Christmas Eve
and I believe in long, slow, deep, soft, wet kisses that last three days.

(Crash Davis)
From the movie "Bull Durham"

Connie Mack & 1950 Philadelphia A's
His 50th Year as Manager & Owner of the Athletics

"Man may penetrate the outer reaches of the universe,
he may solve the very secret of eternity itself,
but for me, the ultimate human experience
is to witness the flawless execution of the hit and run".

(Branch Rickey, Baseball Owner)
