Sandy Koufax
I don't regret one minute of the last twelve years, but I do believe I would regret one minute too many. Ö I donít know if cortisone is good for you or not. But to take a shot every other ball game is more than I wanted to do and to walk around with a constant upset stomach because of the pills and to be high half the time during a ball game because youíre taking painkillers Ö I donít want to have to do that.
Koufax quotes
Trying to hit him was like trying to drink coffee with a fork.
Koufax
You are part of an entertainment, but you are not really an entertainer. But I enjoyed it, probably more than people enjoyed watching it. I thank the fans for enjoying it with me.




Koufax Sandy quotes
The game has a cleanness. If you do a good job, the numbers say so. You don't have to ask anyone or play politics. You don't have to wait for the reviews.
Koufax Sandy
He throws a 'radio ball,' a pitch you hear, but you don't see.
Sandy Koufax quotes
For two years Tommy was the best hitter in baseball. He just didn't get the recognition. He was part of a team that had a lot of good parts to it.
Sandy Koufax
I can understand how he won 25. What I can't understand is how he lost five.
Koufax Sandy quotes
A guy that throws what he intends to throw, that's the definition of a good pitcher.
Koufax
Koufax - he'll never amount to much.
Koufax Sandy
The only time I really try for a strikeout is when I'm in a jam. If the bases are loaded with none out, for example, then I'll go for a strikeout. But most of the time I try to throw to spots. I try to get them to pop up or ground out. On a strikeout I might have to throw five or six pitches, sometimes more if there are foul-offs. That tires me. So I just try to get outs. That's what counts ó outs. You win with outs, not strikeouts.
Sandy Koufax
Either he throws the fastest ball I've ever seen, or I'm going blind.




Sandy Koufax quotes
In the end it all comes down to talent. You can talk all you want about intangibles, I just don't know what that means. Talent makes winners, not intangibles. Can nice guys win? Sure, nice guys can win ó if they're nice guys with a lot of talent. Nice guys with a little talent finish fourth, and nice guys with no talent finish last.
Sandy Koufax
Pitching is the art of instilling fear.
Koufax quotes
It's no disgrace to get beat by class.
