Favorite Baseball Quote
“Remember, kid, there’s heroes and there’s legends; heroes get remembered, but legends never die. Follow your heart, kid, and you’ll never go wrong.” – The Sandlot
My name is Colin and I am 11 years old. I’ve played baseball since I was 3. Since I was 5, my favorite movie has been The Sandlot. The scene where Babe Ruth talks to Benny and says “Remember, kid, there’s heroes and there’s legends; heroes get remembered, but legends never die. Follow your heart, kid, and you’ll never go wrong.” This is my favorite quote because I want to be a legend, and I know it takes hard work to become a legend. I love baseball in my heart, and when I get tired on the field, at practice or working out, I remember Babe Ruth telling Benny to follow his heart, so I follow mine to keep working as hard as I can and do whatever it takes to be a legend someday.
