100 inspiring baseball love quotes

baseball love quotes: Baseball is the oldest of the Big Four American classic sports and has produced many epic moments throughout its history. Epic moments fueled by moving words from inspiring men and women and defined by those who heard them. In this article, we will look at some of the most iconic and motivational baseball quotes that can be called upon during those difficult times that life throws at us.

Baseball is the quintessential image of American life. More than football, basketball, or anything else you can name. It has stood the test of time and has adapted as society has grown and changed. At its core, though, baseball remains one of America’s most definitive pastimes. At its roots, baseball is just a game. However, in truth, it is something that goes much deeper. It is itself motivation in real form. It is passion, dedication and sacrifice. The embodiment of all that is, was, and could one day be. The thrill of the chase, the heights of victory, and the shared despair of defeat.
