Johannes Peter “Honus” Wagner was an American baseball shortstop who played 21 seasons in Major League Baseball from 1897 to 1917, almost entirely for the Pittsburgh Pirates. Enjoy Honus Wagner’s best quotes below.
“In all my years of play, I never saw an ump deliberately make an unfair decision. They really called them as they saw ‘em.”
“There ain’t much to being a ballplayer, if you’re a ballplayer.”
“I never have been sick. I don’t even know what it means to be sick. I hear other players say they have a cold. I just don’t know what it would feel like to have a cold – I never had one.”
“I won’t play for a penny less than fifteen hundred dollars.”
