Baseball quotes ...
... hold a special place in our hearts because we're all aware of the courage it takes to work toward a dream. I know this personally, as my husband was a Native American pitcher who led his team to win the College World Series in 1970. My husband's rocket arm and love for baseball made his college education possible and opened many doors that would have been closed to him in the late 60's and early 70's.
Many of the baseball quotes below reveal what we know of life--that working toward your dreams requires practice and commitment. Whatever you do in life, this is a fundamental lesson to remember. It is in this way that baseball serves as inspiration to us all.

Inspirational Baseball Quotes
"A star works at being a star … that’s how you tell a star in baseball. He shows up night after night and takes pride in how brightly he shines. He’s Wilie Mays running so hard his hat keeps falling off; Ty Cobb sliding to stretch a single into a double; Lou Gehrig, after being fooled in his first two at-bats, belting the next pitch off the light tower because he’s taken the time to study the pitcher. Stars never take themselves for granted. That’s why they’re stars."

"Whenever I went into a slump, I went back to fundamentals. Wait on the ball, be quick, use a light bat and choke up."
"To be good, you’ve got to have a lot of little boy in you."
~Roy Campanella (1921-1993)~
"It’s not over ‘til it’s over."
My son, Colt, played in Little League All-Stars this year.

Without baseball, the world axis would tilt.
Animals would bark and howl constantly.
Citco signs and subway trains would quit running.
All sunrises and sunsets would be gray. Without baseball,
all that we love might never be the same.
