A quote from father to son on learning the game of baseball:

“I told him who to watch. I said if you want to be a catcher, watch Johnny Bench. If you want to be a right-handed power hitter, watch Mike Schmidt. If you just want to be a hitter, watch me.”–Pete Rose

This quote is by all-time Reds great Pete Rose, on teaching his son, future Red Pete Rose, Jr., about the game. The quote was originally printed in “USA Today,” April 4, 1989. I found the quote in Paul Dickson’s book “Baseball’s Greatest Quotations.”
