Great Quotes From Great Pitchers.

“Have you ever thrown a ball 100 miles an hour? Everything hurts. Even your ass hurts. I see pictures of my face and say, ‘Holy shit’, but that’s the strain you feel when you throw. I had one of those faces you look at it, man, and say, ‘Man he’s an asshole.’ Could be, depends on if you pissed me off or not.” – Bob Gibson


“Buck O’Neil deserves to be in the Hall. Not just as a player, but as a human being and as a person that promotes baseball all over the world.” – Bob Feller


“I’ve never hurt my arm pitching. I’ve only hurt my arm in brawls, and swinging the bat and running into walls falling out of buildings. I’ve never hurt myself pitching. I’m still pitching. People ask me how I do that — I roll logs, I work for a living, I do yoga and I drink a lot.” – Bill Lee

“I was brought into situations God couldn’t get out of, and I got out of them.” – Goose Gossage


“I became a good pitcher when I stopped trying to make them miss the ball and started trying to make them hit it.” – Sandy Koufax


“I didn’t begin cheating until late in my career, when I needed something to help me survive. I didn’t cheat when I won the twenty-five games in 1961. I don’t want anybody to get any ideas and take my Cy Young Award away. And I didn’t cheat in 1963 when I won twenty-four games. Well, maybe a little.” – Whitey Ford
