What Have YOU Done For Me Lately?

(From Baseball for the Love of It, Hall of Famers Tell it Like It Was, by Anthony Conner)

Stanley Coveleski put it best when he said:

It's a tough racket. There's always someone sitting on the bench just itching to get in there in your place. Wants your job in the worst way: back to the coal mines for you, pal.

The pressure never lets up. Doesn't matter what you did yesterday. That's history. It's tomorrow that counts. So you worry all the time. It never ends. Lord, baseball is a worrying thing.
