  Baseball Movie Quotes  
 

Terrance Mann
"The One Constant Through All The Years Has Been Baseball"

"The one constant through all the years has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It's been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt, and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game, is a part of our past. It reminds us of all that once was good, and that could be again."

- Terrance Mann, Field of Dreams



No Crying
"There's No Crying in Baseball!"

"Are you crying? Are you crying? Are you crying? There's no crying! There's no crying in baseball!" 
 
-Jimmy Dugan, A League of Their Own


The Sandlot
"Everybody Gets One Chance"

"Let me tell you something kid. Everybody gets one chance to do something great. Most people never take the chance, either because they're too scared, or they don't recognize it when it spits on their shoes."

- The Babe, The Sandlot



Moonlight Graham
"Is There Enough Magic Out There?"

"Well, you know... I never got to bat in the major leagues. I would have liked to have had that chance. Just once. To stare down a big league pitcher. To stare him down, and just as he goes into his windup, wink. Make him think you know something he doesn't. That's what I wish for. Chance to squint at a sky so blue that it hurts your eyes just to look at it. To feel the tingling in your arm as you connect with the ball. To run the bases - turn a double into a triple, and flop face-first into third, wrap your arms around the bag. That's my wish, Ray Kinsella. That's my wish. And is there enough magic out there in the moonlight to make this dream come true?"

- Dr. Archibald "Moonlight" Graham, Field of Dreams


The Natural
"Wonderboy Flashed in the Sun"

"Wonderboy flashed in the sun. It caught the sphere it was biggest. A noise like a twenty-one gun salute cracked the sky. There was a straining, ripping sound and a few drops of rain spattered to the ground somebody then shouted it was raining cats and dogs. By the time of Roy got in from second he was wading in water ankle deep.” 

- Bernard Malamud, The Natural



Major League
"Let's All Gather 'Round"

"All right people, we got ten minutes 'till game time, let's all gather 'round. I'm not much for giving inspirational addresses, but I'd just like to point out that every newspaper in the country has picked us to finish last. The local press seems to think that we'd save everyone the time and trouble if we just went out and shot ourselves. Me, I'm for wasting sportswriters' time. So I figured we ought to hang around for a while and see if we can give 'em all a nice big crapburger to eat!

- Manager Lou Brown, Major League


For Love of the Game
"Pitching Against Time"

"And you know Steve you get the feeling that Billy Chapel isn't pitching against left handers, he isn't pitching against pinch hitters, he isn't pitching against the Yankees. He's pitching against time. He's pitching against the future, against age, and even when you think about his career, against ending. And tonight I think he might be able to use that aching old arm one more time to push the sun back up in the sky and give us one more day of summer."

- Vin Scully, For Love of the Game


A League of Their Own
"It's Supposed to be Hard"

"It's supposed to be hard. If it wasn't hard, everyone would do it. The hard... is what makes it great."

- Jimmy Dugan, A League of Their Own


Moneyball
"It's An Unfair Game"

"The problem we're trying to solve is that there are rich teams and there are poor teams. Then there's fifty feet of crap, and then there's us. It's an unfair game. And now we've been gutted. We're like organ donors for the rich. Boston's taken our kidneys, Yankees have taken our heart. And you guys just sit around talking the same old "good body" nonsense like we're selling jeans. Like we're looking for Fabio. We've got to think differently. We are the last dog at the bowl. You see what happens to the runt of the litter? He dies."

- Billy Beane, Moneyball


Sandlot
"You Play Ball Like a Girl!"

"You eat dog crap for breakfast, geek."
"You mix your Wheaties with your mama's toe jam."
"You play ball like a girrrrrrrrl!"
"What did you say?"
"You heard me."
"Tomorrow. Noon. At our field. Be there, buffalo-butt breath."
"Count on it, pee-drinking crap-face." 

- Ham Porter and Phillips, Moneyball


Lollygaggers
"Lollygaggers!"

"You guys. You lollygag the ball around the infield. You lollygag your way down to first. You lollygag in and out of the dugout. You know what that makes you? Lollygaggers!"

- Skip, Bull Durham


Crash Davis
"I Was In the Show"

"Yeah, I was in the show. I was in the show for twenty-one days once - the twenty-one greatest days of my life. You know, you never handle your luggage in the show, somebody else carries your bags. It was great. You hit white balls for batting practice, the ballparks are like cathederals, the hotels all have room service, and the women all have long legs and brains."

- Crash Davis, Bull Durham


Annie Savoy
"The Church of Basbeall"

"I believe in the Church of Baseball. I've tried all of the major religions, and most of the minor ones. I've worshipped Buddha, Allah, Brahma, Vishnu, Siva, trees, mushrooms, and Isadora Duncan. For instance, there are 108 beads in a Catholic rosary and there are 108 stitches in a baseball. When I heard that, I gave Jesus a chance. But it just didn't work out between us. The Lord laid too much guilt on me. I prefer metaphysics to theology. You see, there's no guilt in baseball, and it's never boring... I've tried 'em all, I really have, and the oply church that really feeds the soul, day in, day out, is the Church of Baseball."
 
- Annie Savoy, Bull Durham 


Nuke LaLoosh
"This is a Very Simple Game"

"A good friend of mine used to say 'This is a very simple game. You throw the ball, you catch the ball, you hit the ball. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose, sometimes it rains.' Think about that for a while.
 
- Luke LaLoosh, Bull Durham
