I recently saw a quote on a baseball blog supposedly by Roberto Clemente:

"If you want to hit, you must be able to hit bad balls. Do you think a pitcher is going to give you good balls to hit?"

Does anyone think he said that? I can here Roberto say those words.

I'm of the opinion he did make that statement or one similar to the above quote.

I've read just about everything I could get my hands on re Clemente for the past 45 years or so - I don't remember reading that quote before.
