Quote of the Day (Tommy Lasorda, Assessing His Catcher’s Speed)

“If he raced his pregnant wife, he’d finish third.”—Los Angeles Dodgers manager and Baseball Hall of Famer Tommy Lasorda (1927-2021), on catcher Mike Scioscia, quoted in Houston Mitchell, “The Late Tommy Lasorda Was Known As Much for His Quotes As for His Managerial Acumen,” Los Angeles Times, Jan. 8, 2021

I was going to use another quote from the late Dodger legend—one of those classic locker-room inspirational mottoes. But as soon as I saw this one—well, let’s just say I knew I had spotted a winner!
