阿尔·卡琳(Al Kaline)名言

What gets me upset about with the newer players is their lack of intensity. They tend to go through the motions a little bit. They don't understand that you've got to practice the way you play.

让我对新队员感到不安的是他们缺乏强度。他们倾向于做一些动作。他们不明白你必须练习你的打法。

It hurt me a great deal. It put a lot of pressure on me because I was at a young age and the writers around here and throughout the league starting comparing me to Cobb. It put a lot of pressure on me.

这让我很伤心。这给我带来了很大的压力,因为我还很小,这里和整个联盟的作家们都开始把我和科布相提并论。它给了我很大的压力。

All of a sudden I'm in the major leagues and we're traveling from town to town. I see the other players dressing different every day. I've got only one suit and I keep wearing it over and over. I'm really embarrassed.

突然间,我加入了大联盟,我们从一个城市到另一个城市旅行。我看到其他球员每天穿着不一样。我只有一套西装,而且我一直穿着它。我真的很尴尬。

Switching to the outfield was the best break I ever got.

换到外场是我得到的最好的休息。

I'll never forget that first night with the team. Going to the ballpark on the bus was the hardest 30 minutes of my life. I had to walk down that aisle between all the players. I really didn't know too much about the Detroit Tigers at that time.

我永远不会忘记和球队的第一晚。坐公共汽车去棒球场是我一生中最艰难的30分钟。我不得不走在所有球员中间的通道上。当时我对底特律老虎队真的不太了解。

I didn't know who was on the team, but I saw every eye as I walked down the aisle. It looked like a thousand eyes were staring right at me saying, 'Who is this young punk?' I just kept my eyes straight ahead.

我不知道谁在队里,但我在走道上看到了每一只眼睛。好像有一千只眼睛正盯着我说,‘这个小流氓是谁?’我的眼睛一直盯着前方。

I started in for the ball but I just couldn't get it. I should have caught it because I was used to catching everything on the sandlots. But they hit the ball a lot harder in the major leagues and I just couldn't reach the ball this time.

我开始抢球,但就是拿不到。我本该抓住它的,因为我习惯于在沙地上抓任何东西。但是他们在大联盟里击球更用力了,我这次就是够不着球。

阿尔·卡琳

As the days went on, I didn't mind the games. In fact, I looked forward to them. That was the easiest part of all. I couldn't wait to get to the ballpark I'd be the first one there and I was willing to do anything. I think that's why the veterans liked me.

随着时间的推移,我不介意比赛。事实上,我很期待他们。这是最简单的部分。我迫不及待地想去球场,我会是第一个去的,我愿意做任何事。我想这就是老兵喜欢我的原因。
