Let me give you another perspective. I just returned from Florida where I picked up my son’s car from where he had left it after spring training. Team rules are such that he had to fly from spring training so he had to leave his car full of clothes, bats and balls, CDs etc. Included in his cache were about 20 different “T” shirts some which had a baseball message printed on them. Yesterday I washed and folded those shirts and the ones I though sent the strongest message were the ones that had the simple team name or the team logo. I’m refering to his high school and summer teams like the double "D" of Dulin's Dodgers or the "North Side Baseball" shirts. While I have seen some "T" shirt sayings that I thought were unique, I personally like the "T" shirt that just has the name of the school or the name of the team. I personally think the real message should not be in cleverly thought out words but in the reputation of the team. Think about it, if a picture is worth a thousand words --- Then the name of the teams says it all.

-There is no "I" in Team
-TEAM (together everyone achieves more)
-Character is what you do when no one else is looking - (my favorite quote)
-go hard or go home (overused)
-Champions are afraid of losing, everyone else is afraid of winning

There are many more check out gandy's inc t-shirt design they have a ton posted

I once made up a t-shirt with our team name on the front and had the printer make the shirt look filthy dirty. On the back it read "Play Hard, Play Dirty."
Respect The Game

Our team has a cartoon baseball with indian head dress for a logo. Our practice shirts have the logo and say, "Offense that's Offensive", not PC, but fits the character of the team.

I am a high school baseball coach and we put a saying on our practice shirts every year. We try to come up with something that fits the attitude of the team and try to reiterate this throughout the year. We try to stay away from long quotes and sentences and use something short and sweet. Some of the ones we have used are "Show me, don't tell me" and "Work hard every day" and "TEAM, me"(this one we had "TEAM" in big bold letters on top and "me" in little letters underneath to represent that the Team is bigger than me)

One of our assistant coaches thought of this one:

Blisters on the hands for rings on the fingers!

It's cocky, but cool.

Slogans on a Tshirt are a horrible idea. Just put the name of the school on it...that's baseball. Anything more is kinda bush. If you want a motivational quote, post it in the dugout. And especially don't use..."Champions are afraid of losing, everyone else is afraid of winning." That's not even true.

My 11 yr old has a shirt that says, "I've seen better cuts under a bandaid, swing like you meant it" Not exactly what you're looking for but pretty cool.

Here's a few I've used over the years:

WHATEVER IT TAKES
All for one, and one for ball
Never underestimate the heart of the champion
Tradition never Graduates
Impossible is an opinion

Had a really good veteran team back in 04.. We had what looked like a road sign on the back of our practice tee's with Austin-41 on the back. Was how far to Disch Faulk field from ours.. We ended upo making it to the tournament..Was great motivation.

My favorite baseball line is from my alltime favorite player Peter Edward Rose.
"I'd walk through hell in a gasoline suit to play baseball."
I had the great fortune to meet Pete one day and had him sign that quote for me. It hangs in our dugout.

Guys, these are practice jerseys, not game jerseys. And these are 13 year olds, not older HS kids.What harm could a slogan on a practice Tee cause? Sheesh!

THat said, I like the slogans that are ispirational for practice tees rather than those that sound like bragging or bashing. Your game oughta speak for itself.

My problem with sayings is that they promote a cockiness, and not necessarily a good cockiness. I love it when a catcher has a "you run, I gun" type shirt on and then he can't reach 2nd base, or the opposition runs all over him.
The attitude is displayed on the field, with approach, preparation, communication and execution. No saying will positively affect a players ability if they aren't prepared and don't execute. Teaching them to have fun while preparing is also very important IMO.
The sayings are just another part of everyday loud self promotion that we so often see displayed today. We used to say "all talk, no action". Leave it all on the field, wear a smile and a shirt that fits comfortably.

Blood makes the grass grow.

More appropriate for football.

Team name, nothing else for baseball.

My new favorites:

Good is the enemy of Great.

If you are content to be good, you will never be great.

The game does not build character, the game reveals character.--too long, but a good one.

And for the trash talkers:

Grab a straw, cuz you suck.--too funny!!!
