20 Baseball Quotes That Apply to Life – Day 227 of 365 Days to a Better You

Hey, my friends, my apologies for missing yesterday. Baseball is a game of superstition. Perhaps it’s in recognition of the fact that talent and athleticism, while important, plays a much smaller role than in other major sports. It’s a game where anything can happen. On a given weekend with a hot streak at their back, the worst team in baseball can sweep the best in a three-game series. That’s far less likely in basketball and would be in football if they played series. In those sports, a superior team often dominates and would likely do the same over multiple games.

This makes baseball like life. Talent, skill, execution, and luck all play a role in any success. No one rolls through a season undefeated or by winning three-quarters of their games.

Because of this baseball players often double as philosophers to deal with quirks of their sport and to inspire. Here a 10 pieces of baseball philosophy to inspire you today. May they keep you on track during the turbulent road toward your dreams. For what describes baseball, describes life.
