In the last edition of MTC I shared some thoughts about purposefully refreshing, renewing, and restoring ourselves and our perspectives. Well…we’re back from spring break and I’m grateful to say it was refreshing!


Typically I use this media to wax philosophical about a point or two that has come to my mind lately. This edition isn’t waxing about anything…it’s intended to be just downright fun!!!


Baseball and softball seasons are here!


I played baseball as a kid in little league and for a couple of years in early high school. I was never very good, and didn’t follow the sport closely. Now…I can hardly wait to get outside to watch the kiddos play, help wherever and whenever I can, and cheer on our favorite teams. Here are a handful of funny baseball quotes that I hope make you chuckle, as well as make you long for a ball park hot dog, peanuts, cracker jacks, and seventh inning stretches like they do for me!

  1. Ninety percent of this game is half mental.— Yogi Berra
  2. If a woman has to choose between catching a fly ball and saving an infant's life, she will choose to save the infant's life without even considering if there is a man on base.— Dave Barry
  3. The other teams could make trouble for us if they win. — Yogi Berra
  4. There's no crying in baseball!— Tom Hanks in A League of Their Own
  5. Well, it took me 17 years to get 3,000 hits in baseball, and I did it in one afternoon on the golf course.— Hank Aaron
  6. You don't realize how easy this game is until you get up in that broadcasting booth. — Mickey Mantle
  7. When you start the game, they don't say "Work ball!" They say "Play ball!"— Willie Stargell
  8. There are two theories on hitting the knuckleball. Unfortunately, neither one of them works.— Charlie Lau
  9. The way to catch a knuckleball is to wait until the ball stops rolling and then to pick it up.— Bob Uecker
  10. A hot dog at the game beats roast beef at the Ritz.— Humphrey Bogart
  11. He looks like a greyhound, but he runs like a bus.— George Brett on teammate Jamie Quirk
  12. The baseball mania has run its course. It has no future as a professional endeavor. — Cincinnati Gazetteeditorial, 1879
