Item Description...
Here's what former Chicago White Sox owner Bill Veeck had to say about baseball: “This is a game to be savored, not gulped. There's time to discuss everything between pitches or between innings.” That's just one of the thousands of quotes gathered in this gigantic collection, and they include some of the wisest, wittiest comments made on America's national pastime. Edited by Wayne Stewart, a sports writer with almost 30 years of experience and 20 books to his name, and with a Foreword by Roger Kahn, who wrote the seminal book on baseball, The Boys of Summer, this anthology includes observations from players, managers, owners, writers, fans, and more. Among the greats whose thoughts are here to savor: Hank Aaron, Satchel Paige, Babe Ruth, Sandy Koufax, Willie Mays, Derek Jeter, Don Zimmer, Roger Angell, Red Barber, George Will, and countless others. This is a great gift book for any baseball fan!

The Must Have Book For All Baseball Fans  Mar 22, 2008
I can not emphasize enough how enjoyable "The Gigantic Book of BAseball Quotations" is. This book is the perfect gift for Dad on Father's Day or any other day, for the Little Leaguer or for any lover of the great American pastime.

The "Gigantic Book of Baseball Quotations" contains quite literally thousand of quotes (over 3,000) from the players, coaches, sportswriters and game announcers to the fans themselves.

The various chapters include "Stars and Superstars", Hitters and Hitting", "Pitchers and Pitching", "The Media", "Humor", "The Classic Quotes" and "The World Series" to name a few. There is also an entire chapter devoted to quotations by and about Babe Ruth.

The quotes range over the entire history of the game from the description of Honus Wagner "He walks like a crab, fields like an octopus and hits like the devil" to Jason Giambi's observation that "the hardest part of any slump is looking up at the scoreboard and seeing your stats in huge numbers"; to lines from fans such as Humphrey Bogart "A hot dog at the ballpark is better than a steak at the Ritz".

There is a detailed list of sources as well as a complete list of all the people quoted. At more than 750 pages for a list price of $24.95 you will not find a better value for your dollar anywhere.
Giganticly Awesome  Dec 19, 2007
Who doesn't love America's past-time? We go to games, talk about it with our friends, agonize, and form fierce loyalties, all over this game. This book is such a great collection of musings on the great sport of baseball. Cal Ripken, Jr, Hank Aaron, Yogi Berra, Joe DiMaggio, Ken Griffey, Jr., all of baseball's greats pitch in their thoughts on the sport that brings this country together.
Great quotes for baseball fanatics  Nov 8, 2007
I LOVE's history and the characters that have come along with the sport. This book is a GREAT collection of quotes from all aspects of baseball...players, owners, umpires, will just chuckle thru much of this book. I like to include baseball words of wisdom in my emails, at baseball gatherings, on my business cards...and this book gives me a great list to choose from. Great for baseball trivia games with fellow baseball fanatics. It is the most comprehensive collection I have ever seen in print. A MUST read!!
