I'll post the answers soon, no Googling or other web searching or cheating. Good Luck!

A: "Hitting the ball was easy. Running around the bases was the tough part."

B. "It puzzles me how they know what corners are good for filling stations. Just how did they know gas and oil was under there?"

C. "A nickel isn't worth a dime today."

D. "It's called talent. I just have it. I can't explain it. You either have it or you don't."

E. "I feel like I have reached the stage where I can no longer produce for my club, my manager, and my teammates. I had a poor year, but even if I had hit .350, this would have been my last year. I was full of aches an pains and it had become a chore for me to play. When baseball is no longer fun, it's no longer a game."

F. "I am the best in baseball."

G. "When I put on my uniform, I feel I am the proudest man on earth."

H. '"If my uniform doesn't get dirty, I haven't done anything in the baseball game."

I. "I never threw an illegal pitch. The trouble is, once in a while I toss one that ain't never been seen by this generation."

J. "The way to catch a knuckleball is to wait until it stops rolling and then pick it up."

K. "I regret to this day that I never went to college. I feel I should have been a doctor."

L. "I've found that you don't need to wear a necktie if you can hit."

M. "Don't ever forget two things I'm going to tell you. One, don't believe everything that's written about you. Two, don't pick up too many checks."

N. "I get a kick out of watching a team defense me. A player moves two steps in one direction and I hit it two steps the other way. It goes right by his glove and I laugh."

O. "I looked for the same pitch my whole career, a breaking ball. All of the time. I never worried about the fastball. They couldn't throw it past me, none of them."

P. "If a tie is like kissing your sister, losing is like kissing your grandmother with her teeth out."

Q. "I found a delivery in my flaw."

T. "Pitching is the art of instilling fear."

U. "Eighty percent of the people who hear them (your troubles) don't care and the other twenty percent are glad you're having them"

V. "I never threw the spitter, well maybe once or twice when I really needed to get a guy out real bad."

W. Have you ever thrown a ball 100 miles an hour? Everything hurts. Even your ass hurts. I see pictures of my face and say, 'Holy shit', but that's the strain you feel when you throw. I had one of those faces you look at it, man, and say, 'Man he's an ass-hole.' Could be, depends on if you pissed me off or not."

X. "I think there should be bad blood between all clubs."

Y. "What are you going to do? Admit to yourself that the pitchers have you on the point of surrender? You can't do that. You must make yourself think that the pitchers are just as good as they always have been or just as bad."

Z. I want to be in the lineup every day. Playing anywhere is better than playing the bench.

That's the only one I know for sure other than a couple that Demonpenz already said.

I'm guessing N might be 17.

T: 05?
