Description
What better sport to inspire poetry than the timeless but carefully metered game of baseball? And what better poet than Paul B. Janeczko -- an ardent baseball fan -- to bring young readers his accessible, insightful observations of every aspect of the game, from the umpires to the vendors in the stands to the turning of a perfect double play. What does one do to pass the time during a rain delay? Is there really a right way to spit if you are a baseball player? Here is a collection of poems perfect for sharing, illustrated with Carole Katchen's atmospheric pastels.
