They talk about those All-Star Games being exhibition affairs, and maybe they are, but I've seen very few players in my life who didn't want to win, no matter whom they were playing or what for.
If I'm playing cards for pennies, I want to win.
As far as control and stuff is concerned, I never had any more in my life than for that All-Star game in 1934.
The screwball's an unnatural pitch. Nature never intended a man to turn his hand like that throwing rocks at a bear.
A fellow doesn't last long on what he has done. He has to keep on delivering.
I had no chance of controlling a ball game until I first controlled myself.
