Don’t Die on Third (quote)

So, while there’s one thing yet to do, and there’s always one thing yet to do, or a fraction of time to do it in, Don’t die on third.  Study conditions, learn all you can, use all you learn, summon your strength and courage, defy luck – and, then bold player – just by doing this, you have already scored. Something great is strengthened within you.  The run may fail, but you have not, and there’s another game tomorrow.
