Here's a favorite of mine:

"They say some of my stars drink whiskey, but I have found that the ones who drink milk shakes don't win any ball games."

And Casey, on Bobby Richardson:

"He doesn't drink, he doesn't smoke, he doesn't chew, he doesn't stay out late, and he still only hits .250."

Casey was referring to Martin, Ford, Mantle and Bauer with that comment. He was a great man with philosophy

"It is fashionable to say that successful people, in any field, could have been whatever they wanted, but you could not picture Casey Stengel being anything else but what he was, the greatest showman baseball ever knew."
