What a wonderful Mother's Day gift for one who truly loves the game of baseball. This book is baseball and writing at its best....from Humphrey Bogart's saying...a hot dog at the ballpark is better than steak at the the marvelous photos and Ann Hood's MEMOIR..and her love for the game. As Robert Frost said...some baseball is the fate of all of us.....and for us lucky ones...more than some please!! Despite all its problems, baseball is a great game!!

Colbert does a marvelous job here at combining the various elements of baseball-related art. In this collection you will find some of the very best poems and fictional outtakes that have been written about the game. But the speakers are not limited to professional writers. There are player quotes, journalistic snippets, and even a famous comedic routine.
Finally, the art work is stunning and layed out in a way that accentuates both the visual and verbal aspects of the book. Highly recommended for the fan of literature or baseball that wants something that is both beautiful and meaningful.
