Rules of the Game: Baseball Poetry (Juvenile)

Released April 2009

Reviewed by Bob Walch

This collection of poems celebrates baseball and all it nuances. The subjects of these 40 plus verses range from the strike zone, batting cage, and infield fly rule to the double play, hook slide and sacrifice bunt.

Don't expect "great" poetry here but if you keep in mind that it is the sport itself that is of utmost important these poems will satisfy the reader.

Illustrated with sketches of the game and players, this poetic "take" on the national pastime will should interest anyone, young or old, who delights in spending an afternoon or evening at the ballpark. Who knows? It might get your youngster interested in poetry. Why not challenge him or her to pen a few lines and see what happens?
