Quote of the Day (Baseball’s Joe Garagiola, on His Post-Playing Days)

“Each year I don't play, I get better. The first year on the banquet trail, I was a former ballplayer, the second year I was great, the third year one of baseball's stars, and just last year I was introduced as one of baseball's immortals. The older I get, the more I realize that the worst break I had was playing.” — Catcher-turned-Hall of Fame sportscaster Joe Garagiola (1926-2016), Baseball is a Funny Game (1960)
