Yogi Berra has alot of great ones. here's my favorite from him on some record that he had.

"I knew that record would stand, until it got broken."

Here's another that was reported by a baker that made him a pie for after every game, and he ate the whole thing before bed every time. the baker wanted to know if he wanted his pie cut into 6 or 8 pieces so yogi's response was...

"you better cut it into 6 pieces i don't know if i could eat 8."

Here's some more good ones.

We're supposed to be perfect our first day on the job and then show constant improvement.
--Ed Vargo, major league baseball umpire

A hot dog at the ball park is better than steak at the Ritz.
--Humphrey Bogart

You owe it to yourself to be the best you can possible be - in baseball and in life.
--Pete Rose

Trying to sneak a fastball past Hank Aaron is like trying to sneak the sunrise past a rooster.

"I get tired of hearing my ballplayers bellyache all the time. They should sit in the press box sometime and watch themselves play."
--San Diego Padres president Buzzie Bavasi, 1973

Hello again, everybody. It's a bee-yooo-tiful day for baseball.

"I'd walk through hell in a gasoline suit to keep playing baseball."
- Pete Rose

"Why certainly I'd like to have that fellow who hits a home run every time at bat, who strikes out every opposing batter when he's pitching, who throws strikes to any base or the plate when he's playing outfield and who's always thinking about two innings ahead just what he'll do to baffle the other team. Any manager would want a guy like that playing for him. The only trouble is to get him to put down his cup of beer and come down out of the stands and do those things."
--Danny Murtaugh, manager
