Summary
Baseball is a game of fine points and grand gestures, small blunders and bold accomplishments, the hook slide into second, the humble bunt, the unexpected wild pitch, the bases-loaded home run. Poet and baseball fan Marjorie Maddox pays tribute to these and other details that make the national pastime an enduring and engaging sport for players and fans alike. Surprising wordplay and keen images offer a unique perspective of the classic American game. John Sandford's memorable characters and scenes play up the drama
