Clemente could field the ball in New York and throw out a guy in Pennsylvania. He was a great player and deserved a longer life.
A barber is by nature and inclination a sport. He can tell you at what exact hour the ball game is to begin, can foretell its issue without losing a stroke of the razor, and can explain the points of inferiority of all the players, as compared with the better men that he has personally seen elsewhere, with the nicety of a professional.stephen leacock
In soccer, the blindest player is the one who sees nothing but the ball.nelson rodrigues
I think football would become an even better game if someone could invent a ball that kicks back.Eric Morecambe
It is therefore not an exaggeration to say that if the city of New York were replaced by a ball of fire, some significant percentage of the American population would see a silver lining in the subsequent mushroom cloud, as it would suggest to them that the best thing that is ever going to happen was about to happen: the return of Christ. It should be blindingly obvious that beliefs of this sort will do little to help us create a durable future for ourselves- socially, economically, environmentally, or geopolitically.sam harris
Thompson and then his young men demolished a recurrent scientific myth one that had surfaced again in the 1870's: that there was nothing left to be discovered, nothing new under the sun. Part of the immutable wisdom of the day, endorsed and believed long before the greatest of scientists, Isaac Newton, was a kind of billiard ball theory of the atom, which went back to the ancient Greeks. The word itself is from the Greek atomos , meaning "inidivisible."j. j. thomson
Every ball isfor methe first ball, whether my score is 0 or 200, and I never visualize the possibility of anybody getting me out.Sir Don(ald George) Bradman
Yet, when confinement's lingering hour was done, Our sport, our studies, and our souls were one: Together we impell'd the flying ball; Together waited in our tutor's hall; Together join'd in cricket's manly toil.lord byron
Logistics is the ball and chain of armored warfare.heinz guderian
I'm a rugby player, really, and I knew I was going to get to him, and when he was about two yards away I just put my head down. There was no malice. I was going for the ball with my head, which I understand is a legitimate move in soccer.Boris Johnson
The history of a battle, is not unlike the history of a ball. Some individuals may recollect all the little events of which the great result is the battle won or lost, but no individual can recollect the order in which, or the exact moment at which, they occurred, which makes all the difference as to their value or importance. ..1st duke of wellington

(Roberto) Clemente could field the ball in New York and throw out a guy in Pennsylvania.vin scully
I'm attracted to soccer's capacity for beauty. When well played, the game is a dance with a ball.Eduardo Galeano
It cannot reasonably be doubted, but a little miss, dressed in a new gown for a dancing-school ball, receives as complete enjoyment as the greatest orator, who triumphs in the splendour of his eloquence, while he governs the passions and resolutions of a numerous assembly.David Hume

What can you expect of a girl who was allowed to wear black satin at her coming-out ball?
You would have made a player... You're beautiful on the ball, you're creative.stuart hall
I think T.O. is the ultimate right now in the league as far as being able to make plays. Every time he touches the ball, he is capable of doing something special with it.terrell owens
It's nice to know that people are paying attention to you on the other side of the ball, but it's also kind of sad because you feel like you're a man that's being hunted down by some vicious animal. I feel they're going to come after me and do whatever they can to shut down the run, and that makes a difference with me in going out and doing my job.emmitt smith
I would rather eat a golf ball than see this movie again.roger ebert
Nature has had regard in everything no less to the end than to the beginning and the continuance, just like a man who throws up a ball. What good is it then for the ball to be thrown up, or harm for it to come down... what good is it to the bubble while it holds together, or what harm when it is burst?marcus aurelius

If you won't carry the ball, you can't lead the team. A leader can give up anything except final responsibility.John C. Maxwell
I think the balance is right - we've got decent size, decent speed and decent dexterity with the ball.
All winter long, I am one for whom the bell is tolling; I can arouse no interest in basketball, Indoor fly casting or bowling; The sports pages are strictly no soap! And until the cry Play ball! I simply mope.
