Random find....my favorite:

"I don't like to sound egotistical, but every time I stepped up to the plate with a bat in my hands, I couldn't help but feel sorry for the pitcher."

Did Hornsby ever call a player "A walking pile of pig ****" as said in A League of Thier Own?

"People ask me what I do in winter when there's no baseball. I'll tell you what I do. I stare out the window and wait for spring."

Well said.

My favorite Hornsby quote was said in regards to golf. he quipped, "when i hit a ball I expect someone else to go chase it." .... I couldn't agree more.:D:

I agree, too. A friend of mine calls golf "cow pasture pool." :D:

I guess he had a thing about golf:

"Players who stand flat footed and swing with their arms are golfers, not hitters."
