Babe Ruth quote
I am reading a nice new book about the relationship between Ty Cobb and Babe Ruth. It's by Tom Stanton and it's called "Ty and the Babe." I found a great quote by Babe Ruth concerning the intentional walk: "It's part of the game, I guess, but when I'm ready to give that ball a ride and that fellow out there passes me, I want to wring his goddamn neck. I'd rather take a punch in the nose than a base on balls."
