    "A good catcher is the quarterback, the carburetor, the lead dog, the pulse taker, the traffic cop and sometimes a lot of unprintable things, but no team gets very far without one."

    "A manager has his cards dealt to him and he must play them."

    "Any ballplayers that played for me on either the Cardinals or the Yankees could come to me if he were in need and I would give him a helping hand. I made only two exceptions, Carl Mays and Joe Bush. If they were in a gutter, I'd kick them."

    "Develop your faculty of observation. Conserve your energy. Make contact with players, especially catchers and infielders, and listen to what they have to say. Work everlastingly for control. Keep studying the hitters for their weak and strong points. Keep talking with your catchers. Always pitch to the catcher and not the hitter. Don't beef at the umpire. Keep pitching with confidence and control of yourself as well as of the ball. Don't get it into your head the umpire is your worst enemy. Fury is as hard on you physically as emotionally."

    Back then, my idol was Bugs Bunny, because I saw a cartoon of him playing ball - you know, the one where he plays every position himself with nobody else on the field but him? Now that I think of it, Bugs is still my idol. You have to love a ballplayer like that. ~Nomar Garciaparra

    "No, why should I?" - asked if he is tired of speaking about his perfect game
    "Sometimes a week might go by when I don't think about that game, but I don't remember when it happened last."
    "When it was over, I was so happy, I felt like crying. I wanted to win this one for Casey (Stengel). After what I did in Brooklyn, he could have forgotten about me and who would blame him? But he gave me another chance and I'm grateful." - locker room after perfect game

    Shut up. I told you to shut up. If I want to spend $4 million on a ballplayer, I will. If I want to spend $12 million, I will. ... Itís my goddamn money and Iíll do what I want." - former Padres owner Ray Kroc

    "I told you fellows last spring I thought this would be my last year. I only wish I could have had a better year , but even if I had hit .350, this would have been the last year for me.
    "You all know I have had more than my share of physical injuries and setbacks during my career. In recent years these have been too frequent to laugh off. When baseball is no longer fun, it's no longer a game.
    "And so, I've played my last game of ball. Since coming to New York I've made a lot of friends, and picked a lot of advisers, but I'd like to make one point clear-no one has influenced me in making this decision. It had been my problem and my decision to make. I feel that I have reached the stage where I can no longer produce for my ball club, my manager, my teammates, and my fans the sort of baseball their loyalty to me deserves.
    "I have been unusually privileged to play all my major league baseball for the New York Yankees. But it has been an even greater privilege to be able to play baseball at all. It has added much to my life. What I will remember most in days to come will be the great loyalty of the fans. They have been very good to me."
