I think I have just about read or listened to every Hall of Fame induction speech possible... thanks to the Baseball Hall of Fame website!

And even though I am a little bias.... I think the best HOF speech was given by Chicago Cub, Ryne Sandberg.

Click on the link below to read his entire speech...

I can go on and on about great sports quotes that come from movies... but I will save those for later!

One of my favorite baseball quotes comes from National League Umpire and recent HOFer Doug Harvey

"Barry Bonds? I'll tell you what, if he hit a home run off Gibson or Drysdale and stood and admired it, they'd knock that earring out of his ear the next time up."

"Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose, sometimes it rains..."

Bull Durham (Ebby Calvin "Nuke" LaLossh)



Crash Davis: [Mechanized bull noises in background] Well, he really hit the sh*t outta that one, didn't he?
[laughs]
Ebby Calvin LaLoosh: [softly, infuriated] I held it like an egg.
Crash Davis: Yeah, and he scrambled the son of a bitch. Look at that, he hit the f-king bull! Guy gets a free steak!
[laughs]
Crash Davis: You having fun yet?
Ebby Calvin LaLoosh: Oh, yeah. Havin' a blast.
Crash Davis: Good.
Ebby Calvin LaLoosh: [pause] God, that sucker teed off on that like he knew I was gonna throw a fastball!
Crash Davis: He did know.

Ebby Calvin LaLoosh: How?
Crash Davis: I told him.

Forgot who said it at the top of my head but "If winning isn't everything they why do they keep score?"
