[beautiful, as-new copy, with no significant wear to either book or jacket; jacket a teensy bit faded at spine]. "Collected here are baseball poems written over the past four decades by fifty-seven contemporary poets, including Richard Eberhart, Donald Hall, Robert Penn Warren, Richard Hugo, and Gail Mazur. [Also Gregory Corso and John Updike.] Few of them venerate legendary baseball players. Instead, they celebrate all the wonderful variations of the game itself: the minor leagues, college ball, high school, American Legion, Babe Ruth and Little League, pickup games in sandlots and pastures, family games of catch in backyards, softball, stickball, tennis-ball-against-the-wall ball."
