baseball

In honor of the greatest annual sporting event that will begin tomorrow night, here are a few fitting quotes from the movie Bull Durham:

"I believe there ought to be a constitutional amendment outlawing Astroturf and the designated hitter."

"Relax, all right? Don't try to strike everybody out. Strikeouts are boring! Besides that, they're fascist. Throw some ground balls - it's more democratic."

"Walt Whitman once said, 'I see great things in baseball. It's our game, the American game. It will repair our losses and be a blessing to us.' You could look it up."
