What better view is there of daily struggle, of America’s complex legacies, of true love than from the bleachers of a baseball stadium? In the same way that NPR’s Car Talk was not really all about cars, these poems are not really all about baseball.

A collection of poetry and quotes about baseball—and about so much more. The diamond is the backdrop for Loren Broaddus’s expl
