I'd rather be lucky than good
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.
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.
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.
I talked to the ball a lot of times in my career. I yelled, "Go foul. Go foul."
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 (Jimmie Foxx) has muscles in his hair.
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.
The secret of my success was clean living and a fast outfield.
I want to thank all my teammates who scored so many runs and Joe DiMaggio, who ran down so many of my mistakes.
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.
Jimmy Foxx could hit me at midnight with the lights out.
Hell, Lou (Gehrig) it took fifteen years to get you out of a game. Sometimes I'm out in fifteen minutes.
We lost 14 straight. Then we had a game rained out and it felt so good we had a victory dinner.
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.
A lot of things run through your head when you're going in to relieve in a tight spot. One of them was, "Should I spike myself?"
He knew he was Joe DiMaggio, and he knew what that meant to the country.
I'm the guy that made Joe DiMaggio famous.
I don't want to throw him nothing. Maybe he'll just get tired of waiting and leave.
It's better to be lucky than good.
I was the worst hitter ever. I never even broke a bat until last year when I was backing out of the garage.
I never had a bad night in my life, but I've had a few bad mornings.
I'd rather not throw the ball at all.
If you don't throw it, they can't hit it.
