Baseball Greats Quotes

Lou Gehrig (1903-1941)

There is no room in baseball for discrimination.  It is our national pastime and a game for all.

Warren Spahn (1921-2003)

What is life, after all, but a challenge?  And what better challenge can there be than the one between the pitcher and the hitter.

Lou Gehrig played his entire career with the New York Yankees.  Nicknamed the “Iron Horse” because he played in a then-record 2,130 consecutive games, Gehrig was the Yankees first baseman for 17 seasons.  He was also a player who displayed outstanding character and integrity.  He was elected to the baseball Hall of Fame in 1939.

Pitcher Warren Spahn played 22 seasons, with all but one being with the Boston/Milwaukee Braves.  A hallmark of his career was his longevity, especially for a pitcher to play in so many seasons.  He was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1973.  During World War II, he served his country in the United States Army.
