I went through baseball as 'a player to be named later.'
I'm a small dog guy. I don't want to be pattin' with the big Rottweiler or Great Dane. I like those little guys that jump on your lap and don't knock you over when they do.
I think that baseball is still the most entertaining game because it's the simplest to watch.
It's pitching, hitting and defense that wins. Any two can win. All three make you unbeatable.
I only wear two rings: a wedding ring and my World Series ring.
Nolan Ryan is pitching much better now that he has his curve ball straightened out.
You can call anything a sport if you want.

The Orioles' Dick Hall comes off the mound like a drunk kangaroo on roller skates.
The catcher is a groundhog. He's a guy squatting down, digging for the ball in the dirt, and sweating under a pile of uncomfortable protective gear while his knees creak.
