‘I used to go to bed and think about a pitch…’

Bill Bucker talking about accepting disappointment in baseball:

I used to go to bed and think about a pitch I’d swung at and missed five games before. Two-thirds of the games you have probably aren’t gonna be very good, so you have to be able to go home, eat your dinner, play with your kids, be nice to your wife, and then come back to the ballpark the next day, ready to go. If you can’t do that, you better try something else.
