Yogi Berra

I regard sports first and foremost as entertainment, so dry documentary narration is not for me. I like the 'let's forget our troubles and have some excitement' approach. I'm convinced you can combine this with reporting integrity and accuracy.
Jack Brickhouse

Football is to baseball as blackjack is to bridge. One is the quick jolt. The other the deliberate, slow-paced game of skill, but never was a sport more ideally suited to television than baseball. It's all there in front of you. It's theatre, really. The star is the spotlight on the mound, the supporting cast fanned out around him, the mathematical precision of the game moving with the kind of inevitability of Greek tragedy. With the Greek chorus in the bleachers!
Vin Scully

Baseball, to me, is still the national pastime because it is a summer game. I feel that almost all Americans are summer people, that summer is what they think of when they think of their childhood. I think it stirs up an incredible emotion within people. Steve Busby

Bill Veeck

People ask me what I do in winter when there's no baseball. I'll tell you what I do. I stare out the window and wait for spring.
Rogers Hornsby

There is no room in baseball for discrimination. It is our national pastime and a game for all.
Lou Gehrig

I'm not old enough to play baseball or football. I'm not eight yet. My mom told me when you start baseball, you aren't going to be able to run that fast because you had an operation. I told Mom I wouldn't need to run that fast. When I play baseball, I'll just hit them out of the park. Then I'll be able to walk.
Edward J. McGrath, Jr
