"A baseball club is part of the
chemistry of the city. A game
isn't just an athletic contest.
It's a picnic, a kind of town meeting."
- Michael Burke, NY Yankees President
"People ask me what I do in winter
when there's no baseball. I'll tell you
what I do. I stare out the window and
wait for spring."
"The game has a cleanness.
If you do a good job, the numbers
say so. You don't have to ask anyone
or play politics. You don't have to wait
for the reviews." - Sandy Koufax
"Kids today are looking for idols,
but sometimes they look too far...
They don't have to look any farther than
their home because those are the people
that love you. They are the real heroes."
