No Hitters Quotes By Hideki Matsui

The power of home run hitters in the majors is different from those here. It's probably difficult for me to match that power now. — Hideki Matsui

It's funny what a few no-hitters do for a body. — Satchel Paige

No Hitters Quotes By Wayne Graham

There is nothing wrong with [pitching by committee] in mid-week [games]. It creates unique problems for hitters. I think it creates more problems for good-hitting teams than it does for the other teams. — Wayne Graham

No Hitters Quotes By Bert Campaneris

I've been in eleven no-hitters you know. — Bert Campaneris

No Hitters Quotes By Kevin Towers

I don't like pitchers who walk hitters. It puts pressure on your defense. The less walks you have, the better your chances of getting through innings. More walks lead to overworking your bullpen, sometimes just by having to get somebody up, just in case. — Kevin Towers

No Hitters Quotes By Goose Gossage

Hitters never showed me up, as hard as I threw. And I was pretty mean out on the mound. — Goose Gossage

No Hitters Quotes By George F. Will

Speaking for George Will, on whose thinking I am world's foremost authority, I say: not necessarily. The heavy hitters do have heavy responsibilities. — George F. Will

There are no short hitters on the tour anymore - just long and unbelievably long. — Sam Snead

While I'm no Major League Baseball prospect, I have thrown a few no-hitters in my day. And not only were there no hitters, there was also nobody there to catch. — Jarod Kintz

No Hitters Quotes By Jorge Posada

My favorite part (of the game) is knowing that they're comfortable, knowing that, no matter
what, they can count on me. What I really enjoy most about catching is the
relationship with a pitcher. The most important thing is they can relax when I'm
back there and know that I did my job, I did some homework on hitters. — Jorge Posada

No Hitters Quotes By Ichiro Suzuki

In baseball, even the best hitters fail seven of ten times, and of those seven failures there are different reasons why. Some are personal failures, others are losses to the pitcher. You just get beat. In those personal failures, I felt I could have done better. — Ichiro Suzuki

No Hitters Quotes By Juan Marichal

My manager said it would more effective against left-handed hitters. It seemed to me that was impossible to do without the high leg kick, which I started that day. — Juan Marichal

No Hitters Quotes By Mark Prior

I don't think I've shied away from anybody. I'm not scared. I respect hitters, but I'm not afraid. — Mark Prior

No Hitters Quotes By Phil Niekro

There aren't many hitters who like facing knuckleball pitchers. They may not be intimidated by them, but they sure are thinking about them before they go into the box. — Phil Niekro

No Hitters Quotes By Tucker Elliot

True, [Gary Nolan] might not strike fear into the hearts of all you free-swinging power hitters out there - at least not in the same way as, say, Tom Seaver ... but without question he was one of the most talented pitchers in baseball during the Big Red Machine era, and except for countless injuries that plagued him year after year he'd have the numbers and awards to back up that claim. — Tucker Elliot

No Hitters Quotes By George Brett

Old third basemen become first basemen, and old first basemen become designated hitters. — George Brett

No Hitters Quotes By Joe Mays

I like my friends to be the hitters. The pitchers, they all have the same brain as I do. The hitters see the game from a different perspective. — Joe Mays

No Hitters Quotes By Kid Nichols

I consider Billy Keeler, Mike Tiernan, Ed Delihanty and Larrie La Joie the toughest hitters I had to pitch to, but I did not dread them. Remember, Hughie Duffy was a member of our team, so I did not face him. In my opinion, Duffy was the greatest hitter. — Kid Nichols

No Hitters Quotes By Bengie Molina

When I got to the stadium, one of my biggest things was watching video of hitters. — Bengie Molina

No Hitters Quotes By Bryan Robson

If I'd been able to put the collection together in one go, say over two years, we'd have had a special team, most wouldn't stay. One or two glory seasons and they were off. To them, the north-east was too far out. They wanted to be with the big hitters. — Bryan Robson

No Hitters Quotes By Michael Chabon

And in that moment he felt- for the first time that optimistic and cheerful boy allowed himself to feel- how badly made life was, how flawed. No matter how richly furnished you made it, with all the noise and variet of Something, Nothing always found a way in, seeped through the cracks and patches. Mr. Feld was right; life was like baseball, filled with loss and error, with bad hops and wild pitches, a game in which even champions lost almost as often as they won and even the best hitters were put out 70 percent of the time — Michael Chabon

No Hitters Quotes By Michael Chabon

Novelist time is reptile time; novelists tend to be ruminant and brooding, nursers of ancient grievances, second-guessers, Tuesday afternoon quarterbacks, retrospectators, endlessly, like slumping hitters, studying the film of their old whiffs. — Michael Chabon

No Hitters Quotes By David Foster Wallace

If you are bored and disgusted by politics and don't bother to vote, you are in effect voting for the entrenched Establishments of the two major parties, who please rest assured are not dumb, and who are keenly aware that it is in their interests to keep you disgusted and bored and cynical and to give you every possible reason to stay at home doing one-hitters and watching MTV on primary day. By all means stay home if you want, but don't bullshit yourself that you're not voting. In reality, there is no such thing as not voting: you either vote by voting, or you vote by staying home and tacitly doubling the value of some Diehard's vote. — David Foster Wallace

No Hitters Quotes By Brad Lidge

If they know you're a nibbler, they're going to wait and look for that. Hitters have to be more aggressive if you're more aggressive. — Brad Lidge

No Hitters Quotes By Mark McGwire

To be the first player to do it three consecutive years (fifty or more home runs), you go back through the thousands of power hitters who played this game and nobody has ever done it, and I can sit here and say I'm the first. I'm pretty proud of that. — Mark McGwire

No Hitters Quotes By Vin Scully

On radio, you're in your own little world. Every time I'd be doing a possible no-hitter - I think I've done something like 25 no-hitters and a couple of perfect games - I would always put the date on the tape. Not for me, but for the player, so that 25 or 30 years later when he's playing it for his kids or grandkids, you have that date. — Vin Scully

No Hitters Quotes By Travis Sawchik

Pull-heavy, right-handed hitters should also have seen shifts, but rarely did. According to BIS's database, the first shift employed against a right-handed hitter in the modern era didn't occur until June 11, 2009, when the Phillies shifted left against Gary Sheffield. — Travis Sawchik

No Hitters Quotes By Dave Winfield

The only players that are having fun are those having a good year, feasting on pitching or blowing down hitters and garnering all the adulation that goes with it. But, if you're not hitting or not throwing well, or are injured, you better look for fun someplace else. — Dave Winfield

No Hitters Quotes By Juan Marichal

You had to pitch in and out. The zone didn't belong to the hitters; it belonged to the pitchers. Today, if you pitch too far inside, the umpire would stop you right there. I don't think it's fair. — Juan Marichal

No Hitters Quotes By Tim Hudson

Hitters are too big, too strong, and their bats are too quick. I have to go inside to have success. — Tim Hudson

No Hitters Quotes By Pat Buchanan

With all that IMF money, the Thailand's and Mexico's are spared the consequences of their fiscal incompetence, and Wall Street's heavy hitters are spared the consequences of their stupid investments. The global economy is a rigged game, rigged so Third World politicians, rich investors and global corporations win - and U.S. taxpayers lose. — Pat Buchanan

No Hitters Quotes By Sterling Sharpe

Nothing is wrong with Tom Brady. When you look at the New England Patriots, they are going to have to readjust how they evaluate talent ... You have to bring in some heavy hitters to protect Tom Brady at 37 years old and help him get the ball out of his hands. — Sterling Sharpe

No Hitters Quotes By David Cone

We just kind of relied on written scouting reports through the eighties and even the early nineties. I've really been amazed by some of the data that's out there, especially with regards to tendencies of hitters, and certainly tendencies of pitchers as well. I would have loved to have gotten that data when I played. — David Cone

No Hitters Quotes By Susanna Kaysen

Lunatics are similar to designated hitters. Often an entire family is crazy, but since an entire family can't go into the hospital, one person is designated as crazy and goes inside. Then, depending on how the rest of the family is feeling that person is kept inside or snatched out, to prove something about the family's mental health. — Susanna Kaysen

No Hitters Quotes By David Carradine

I've worked with a lot of real heavy hitters, and Quentin is maybe heads and shoulders, at least a forehead, above just about anybody I've ever worked with. — David Carradine

No Hitters Quotes By Ken Singleton

Good hitters don't become intimidated. They become infuriated. — Ken Singleton

No Hitters Quotes By John McGraw

Why shouldn't we pitch to Babe Ruth? We pitch to better hitters in the National League. — John McGraw

No Hitters Quotes By Don Mattingly

I want to be on the field. It's a better place to talk to the guys. It's a relaxed atmosphere. You want to make sure you know what's going on, not just with the hitters. — Don Mattingly

No Hitters Quotes By Warren Spahn

The difference between winning nineteen games and winning twenty for a pitcher is bigger than anyone out of baseball realizes. It's the same for hitters - someone who hits .300 looks back on the guy who batted .295 and says 'tough luck buddy. — Warren Spahn

No Hitters Quotes By Ron Luciano

Like some cult religion that barely survives, there has always been at least one but rarely more than five or six devotees throwing the knuckleball in the big leagues ... Not only can't pitchers control it, hitters can't hit it, catchers can't catch it, coaches can't coach it and most pitchers can't learn it. The perfect pitch. — Ron Luciano

No Hitters Quotes By Ernie Harwell

Needless to say, I have more no-hitters than Nolan Ryan. — Ernie Harwell

No Hitters Quotes By C. J. Wilson

I'm a pitcher, so the glove is my only accessory. The hitters get to have all the fun. They have batting helmets, the actual bats, gloves, elbow guards - all this cool stuff to wear. And all I get is a glove. — C. J. Wilson

No Hitters Quotes By Tony La Russa

I think there's a growing number of pitchers who want to have a plan going into a game about how they're going to go after that lineup. I'd say 75 percent want to have an idea, and they plan their attack. I know that 75 percent of hitters do not have that same type of plan against a pitcher. — Tony La Russa

No Hitters Quotes By Roy Oswalt

The pitch would normally be low, but my ball starts carrying and stays on a sustained plane. Everyone always complains - 'that ball is low' - but then you go back and look at the tape, and it's right there. My catchers tell me, and the hitters tell me, that the ball stays true flight the last five or six feet. — Roy Oswalt

No Hitters Quotes By Lance Berkman

I wish I was just a left-handed hitter. It's really tough having to keep both sides sharp, and that's one reason why you don't see switch-hitters hit for that high of an average. You're always fighting one side or the other. — Lance Berkman

No Hitters Quotes By Frank Thomas

I do feel I was overshadowed by some of those guys (who took steroids) ... I had a diminished-skills clause written in after I hit 29 home runs and drove in 92 RBIs, and I think those (steroid-aided home run hitters) are partly to blame. — Frank Thomas

No Hitters Quotes By Justin Verlander

I use high velocity to keep hitters off balance. — Justin Verlander
