Swing For The Fences

I’m delivering a 1 hour presentation on Get Your September In Gear for Freedom 55 Financial with a theme of “Swing For The Fences”.

Here are a series of baseball quotes that I am including in the Power Point Presentation.

You look forward to it like a birthday party when you’re a kid. You think something wonderful is going to happen.
– Joe DiMaggio, on Opening Day

Guys ask me, don’t I get burned out? How can you get burned out doing something you love?
– Tommy Lasorda

Baseball is the only place in life where a sacrifice is really appreciated.
– Author Unknown

You never know what you will find until you take the time to look.
– Yogi Berra

I might have had a tough break, but I have an awful lot to live for.
– Lou Gehrig

Baseball is a man maker.
– Al Spalding

You gotta be a man to play baseball for a living, but you gotta have a lot of little boy in you, too.
– Roy Campanella

One of the beautiful things about baseball is that every once in a while you come into a situation where you want to, and where you have to, reach down and prove something.

I had just turned 20, and Jackie told me the only way to be successful at anything was to go out and do it. He said baseball was a game you played every day, not once a week.

Hitting is 50% above the shoulders.

“A star works at being a star – that’s how you tell a star in baseball. He shows up night after night and takes pride in how brightly he shines. He’s Wilie Mays running so hard his hat keeps falling off; Ty Cobb sliding to stretch a single into a double; Lou Gehrig, after being fooled in his first two at-bats, belting the next pitch off the light tower because he’s taken the time to study the pitcher. Stars never take themselves for granted. That’s why they’re stars.”
– Jim Murray
