Summary

Summary

These seven baseball short stories and three baseball poetry sections (65 poems) reflect the American affection for their national pastime.The stories present a range of emotions--from obsession with the game to disappointment when all is not as it seems, from heightened awareness of who is on the field to similar awareness of who sits beside one in the stands.Likewise, the poetry sections (The Mantle/Mays Controversy Solved, Pete Rose Agonistes, and A Terror of the Pickoff Move) confront the highs and lows of baseball through the eyes of the fan.
