Who said that?

The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - On Tv - BY GEORGE DICKIE

Iden­tify the au­thors of the fol­low­ing quotes:

1) “Do things you don’t like to do; bear down that much harder on what you hate do­ing. It’ll make you a lot bet­ter player. And a lot bet­ter per­son.”

2) “I broke in with four hits, and the writ­ers promptly de­clared they had seen the new Ty Cobb. It took me only a few days to cor­rect that im­pres­sion.”

3) “Sweat plus sac­ri­fice equals suc­cess.”

4) “As of this writ­ing, 15 men in the his­tory of or­ga­nized base­ball have ever thrown a per­fect game. Only one of those men did it half-drunk, with blood­shot eyes, mon­ster breath and a rag­ing, skull-rat­tling hang­over. That would be me.”

5) “I don’t cre­ate con­tro­ver­sies. They’re there long be­fore I open my mouth. I just bring them to your at­ten­tion.” 6) “Ask not what your team­mates can do for you. Ask what you can do for your team­mates.”

7) “I asked a ref if he could give me a tech­ni­cal foul for think­ing bad things about him. He said, ‘Of course not.’ I said, ‘Well, I think you stink.’ And he gave me a tech­ni­cal. You can’t trust ‘em.”
