Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"You decide you'll wait for your pitch. Then, as the ball starts toward the plate, you think about your stance; and then you think about your swing; and then you realize that the ball that went past you for a strike was your pitch." - Bobby Murcer in Men at Work: The Craft of Baseball (George Will, Harper Paperbacks, 04/24/1991, Page 217-218)
