- I loved the game. I'd have played for food money. I'd have played for
free and worked for food. It was the game, the parks, the smells,
the sounds. Have you ever held a bat or a baseball to your face? The
varnish, the leather. And it was the crowd, the excitement of them
rising as one when the ball was hit deep. The sound was like a chorus.
Then there was the chug-a-lug of the tin lizzies in the parking lots,
and the hotels with their brass spittoons in the lobbies and brass beds
in the rooms. It makes me tingle all over like a kid on his way to his
first double-header, just to talk about it.
-Joe Jackson, in W.P.Kinsella's Shoeless Joe Jackson
- It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in the
spring, when everything else begins again, and it blossoms
in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then
as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face
the fall alone.
-A. Bartlett Giamatti, "The Green Fields of the Mind"
- I believe in the Church of Baseball. I've tried all the major
religions and most of the minor ones. And the only church that
truly feeds the soul, day-in day-out, is the Church of Baseball.
-Annie Savoy, in Bull Durham
