Quick Overview

“Baseball was [Rogers] Hornsby’s life. To keep fit, he neither smoked nor drank, and to preserve his keen batting eye, he would not watch a movie or even read a newspaper. ‘People ask me what I do in winter when there’s no baseball,’ he once said. ‘I’ll tell you what I do. I stare out the window and wait for spring.’”
