Play Ball! (Quotes about Baseball)

Yesterday, my husband and I went to our first Diamondback baseball game here at Chase Field in Phoenix. Since neither of us is a huge baseball fan, we got there a little late and left a little early, but we still had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed the in-between-plays festivities.

In case you're unfamiliar with Chase Field (and let's face it, most of us are), it's a unique field because it a) is domed, meaning there's a roof and air conditioning for the 110+ degree weather here, and b) has a natural turf field. It is pretty impressive.

In any case, in honor of our time at the game, here are a few baseball quotes celebrating the game and life, all in one. Happy reading!
Baseball players are smarter than football players.  How often do you see a baseball team penalized for too many men on the field?  ~Jim Bouton, 1988 
No matter how good you are, you're going to lose one-third of your games.  No matter how bad you are you're going to win one-third of your games.  It's the other third that makes the difference.  ~Tommy Lasorda 
Things could be worse.  Suppose your errors were counted and published every day, like those of a baseball player.  ~Author Unknown
