Ty Cobb Quotes
"Baseball is a red-blooded sport for red-blooded men. It's no pink tea, and mollycoddles had better stay out. It's a struggle for supremacy, a survival of the fittest." "Baseball was one-hundred percent of my life." "Don't come home a failure." "Every great batter works on the theory that the pitcher is more afraid of him than he is of the pitcher." "I had to fight all my life to survive. They were all against me... but I beat the bastards and left them in the ditch." "I have observed that baseball is not unlike a war, and when you come right down to it, we batters are the heavy artillery." "I may have been fierce, but never low or underhand." "I never could stand losing. Second place didn't interest me. I had a fire in my belly." "I regret to this day that I never went to college. I feel I should have been a doctor." "Speed is a great asset; but it's greater when it's combined with quickness - and there's a big difference." "The base paths belonged to me, the runner. The rules gave me the right. I always went into a bag full speed, feet first. I had sharp spikes on my shoes. If the baseman stood where he had no business to be and got hurt, that was his fault." "The great trouble with baseball today is that most of the players are in the game for the money and that's it, not for the love of it, the excitement of it, the thrill of it." "When I began playing the game, baseball was about as gentlemanly as a kick in the crotch." "A ball bat is a wondrous weapon."
