People who write about spring training not being necessary have never tried to throw a baseball. -Sandy Koufax

I'd always have grease in at least two places, in case the umpires would ask me to wipe one off. I never wanted to be caught out there with anything though, it wouldn't be professional. -Gaylord Perry

A pitcher will never be a big winner until he hates hitters. -Early Wynn

I looked for the same pitch my whole career, a breaking ball. All of the time. I never worried about the fastball. They couldn't throw it past me, none of them. -Hank Aaron

I never smile when I have a bat in my hands. That's when you've got to be serious. When I get out on the field, nothing's a joke to me. I don't feel like I should walk around with a smile on my face. -Hank Aaron

As far as I'm concerned, Aaron is the best ball player of my era. He is to baseball of the last fifteen years what Joe DiMaggio was before him. He's never received the credit he's due. -Mickey Mantle

I could never be a manager. All I have is natural ability. -Mickey Mantle

I set records that will never be equaled. In fact, I hope 90% of them don't even get printed. -Bob Uecker

I had great control, I never missed hitting the other's fellow bat. -Bill Terry

I never learned anything at all in school and didn't read a book for pleasure until I was 19 years old. -Stanley Kubrick
