Baseball is what gets inside you. It's what lights you up. You can't deny that. It's supposed to be hard. If it wasn't hard, everyone would do it. It's the hard that makes it great.

When I was seven years old, my father took me to Fenway Park for the first time, and as I grew up I knew that as a building it was on the level with Mount Olympus, the Pyramid at Giza, the nation's Capitol, the Czar's Winter Palace and the Louvre. Except, of course, that it was better than all those inconsequential places.

In the late 1970s, ABC had a "Monday Night Baseball" show with Al Michaels, Howard Cosell and Bob Uecker. Michaels told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel recently that they were doing a game in Houston when Uecker chided Cosell for saying something outrageous. Cosell responded: "Ueck, you don't have to get so truculent. You do know what truculent means." Uecker, without missing a beat, said: "Of course, Howard. If you had a truck and I borrowed it, it would be a truck you lent."

Ball, strike, safe, out, foul, fair doesn't change whether the umpire is tall or short, male or female, brown-eyed or blue-eyed. It never comes up in my mind during the game. I'm out there doing the same job that my partner is. We're doing the same thing that every other crew in the league is. The players are up there with their own agendas. They're trying to get to the big leagues just like we are. They care more about 'What's this guy going to throw me on a 1-2 pitch.' They hate me just like they hate every other umpire.
