A team is where a boy can prove his courage on his own. A gang is where a coward goes to hide.
The only thing I can do is play baseball. I have to play ball. It's the only thing I know.
Hitting the ball was easy. Running around the bases was the tough part.
He who has the fastest golf cart never has a bad lie.
When I hit a home run I usually didn't care where it went. So long as it was a home run was all that mattered.
Heroes are people who are all good with no bad in them. That's the way I always saw Joe DiMaggio. He was beyond question one of the greatest players of the century.
If I knew I was going to live this long, I'd have taken better care of myself.
Somebody once asked me if I ever went up to the plate trying to hit a home run. I said, 'Sure, every time.'
It was all I lived for, to play baseball.
It's unbelievable how much you don't know about the game you've been playing all your life.
After I hit a home run I had a habit of running the bases with my head down. I figured the pitcher already felt bad enough without me showing him up rounding the bases.
Well, baseball was my whole life. Nothing's ever been as fun as baseball.
I'll play baseball for the Army or fight for it, whatever they want me to do.
As far as I'm concerned, Aaron is the best ball player of my era. He is to baseball of the last fifteen years what Joe DiMaggio was before him. He's never received the credit he's due.
To play 18 years in Yankee Stadium is the best thing that could ever happen to a ballplayer.
