How you play the game is for college ball. When you're playing for money, winning is the only thing that matters.
I never did say that you can't be a nice guy and win. I said that if I was playing third base and my mother rounded third with the winning run, I'd trip her up.
Some guys are admired for coming to play, as the saying goes. I prefer those who come to kill.
Winning is a habit.
If you don't win, you're going to be fired. If you do win, you've only put off the day you're going to be fired.
Show me a good loser and I'll show you an idiot.
I never questioned the integrity of an umpire. Their eyesight, yes.

Hall of Famer Joe Tinker was born in Muscotah, Kansas on this date in 1880.
