This... is a simple game. You throw the ball. You hit the ball. You catch the ball.  "There are three types of baseball players: those who make things happen, those who watch it happen, and those who wonder what happened."

Jerry Lumpe

FTA

Quote
Although he played solely in the American League, Lumpe grew up a St. Louis Cardinals fan, and his father, W. J. Lumpe, gave him his middle name to honor the star Cardinals pitcher Dizzy Dean. Father and son listened to Cardinals games on the network of the team’s flagship radio station, KMOX, in St. Louis. But it took some initiative to find a spot where the signal would come in clearly.

“We got the station in Sedalia, but it didn’t go very far,” Lumpe told The Springfield News-Leader in 2011. “But there was a hill about five miles north of town, and we’d sit up there in the car listening to the game, my dad and I. You tell the kids that now, and they think you’re crazy.”


True that!  I used to do the same type of thing with my dad!

Yogi Berra.  Truly a sad day for generations of baseball fans, Yankee fan or Yankee hater alike.

Monte Irvin. 

I like this quote from Bill McCurdy's blog about Fidel Castro's failed tryout.

“If we had known he wanted to be a dictator, we would have kept him around and made him an umpire.”
~ Monte Irvin on Fidel Castro’s failed tryout with the former’s Cuban ball club.
