Tommy Lasorda on the Modern, Big League Baseball Clubhouse

Re-posted by Nicholas Stix

This was the quote of the day during tonight’s Mets funeral, which is still underway at Chavez Ravine.

"I walk into the clubhouse and it's like walking into the Mayo Clinic. We have four doctors, three therapists and five trainers. Back when I broke in, we had one trainer who carried a bottle of rubbing alcohol and by the seventh inning he had drunk it all." Source: Sports Illustrated (May 29, 1989)

Stick it in the mud was the refrain from olden times when a player was hurt. Just keep going.
