I'd rather be lucky than good
One rule I had was make your best pitch and back up third base. That relay might get away and you've got another shot at him.
No one hit home runs the way Babe (Ruth) did. They were something special. They were like homing pigeons. The ball would leave the bat, pause briefly, suddenly gain its bearings, then take off for the stands.
I was never nervous when I had the ball, but when I let go I was scared to death.
I've got a new invention. It's a revolving bowl for tired goldfish.
When Neil Armstrong first set foot on the moon, he and all the space scientists were puzzled by an unidentifiable white object. I knew immediately what it was. That was a home run ball hit off me in 1933 by Jimmie Foxx.
Hell, Lou (Gehrig) it took fifteen years to get you out of a game. Sometimes I'm out in fifteen minutes.
I talked to the ball a lot of times in my career. I yelled, "Go foul. Go foul."
I'd rather not throw the ball at all.
I'm something like the old soak who never knew whether his wife told him to take one drink and come home at 12, or take 12 and come home at one.
You just can't imagine the kind of guy he was without seeing him play. He was a circus, a play, a movie, all rolled into one.
I had been having trouble with my eyes. One day my glasses fogged up while I was pitching, but when I cleaned them and looked at the plate and saw Foxx clearly, it frightened me so much I never wore them again.
He knew he was Joe DiMaggio, and he knew what that meant to the country.
He's in a rut. Gehringer goes two for five on opening day and stays that way all season.
I couldn't speak enough Spanish. I couldn't make myself understood on that club.
I don't want to throw him nothing. Maybe he'll just get tired of waiting and leave.
If you don't throw it, they can't hit it.
When I first signed with the Yankees, the regulars wouldn't talk to you until you were with the team three or four years. Nowadays the rookies get $100,000 to sign and they don't talk to the regulars.
I never had a bad night in my life, but I've had a few bad mornings.
Jimmy Foxx could hit me at midnight with the lights out.
He (Jimmie Foxx) has muscles in his hair.
I'm the guy that made Joe DiMaggio famous.
I want to thank all my teammates who scored so many runs and Joe DiMaggio, who ran down so many of my mistakes.
The secret of my success was clean living and a fast outfield.
It's better to be lucky than good.
