You can't get real happy or real depressed when you play baseball. Baseball is a great sport in that it offers a player a lot of opportunities for atonement.
I feel pretty good. My body actually looks like an old banana, but it's fine.
Yes, hard is good. When I was in high school, I spent a lot of time on my knees playing with balls. I guess it was only natural that I became a catcher.
Never let your dreams go away.
Please don't quote me.
