Eddie Guerrero – If you’re not cheating, you’re not trying.
The first time I heard the saying, “If you’re not cheating, you’re not trying hard enough” — made famous by former Chicago Cubs first basemen, Mark Grace — I was a freshman student-athlete at UCLA. It was said by one of my teammates halfway through one of our grueling workouts.
If you ain’t cheatin’, you ain’t tryin’. The credit for that old saying generally goes to NASCAR legend Richard Petty , though it just as easily could have come from Tom Brady , Gaylord Perry or pretty much any of the millions who have thrown, pitched or hit a ball since people started playing sports.
