    About The Book

    Robert Frost never felt more at home in America than when watching baseball “be it in park or sand lot.” Full of heroism and heartbreak, the most beloved of American sports is also the most poetic. Its rhythms are those of the seasons. Its memories are savored, it losses lamented. Baseball’s graceful athleticism, formal strategy, and democratic spirit have ensured the devotion of Americans for generations, and writers have been drawn to this sport as to no other.

    With Baseball: A Literary Anthology, The Library of America presents a vivid panorama of the game that is, in Roger Angell’s words, “one of the reasons that summer exists.” It offers a lively mix of stories, memoirs, poems, news reports, and insider accounts about all aspects of the great American game, from its pastoral 19th-century beginnings to its apotheosis as the undisputed national pastime.

    Here are the major leaguers and the bush leaguers, the umpires and broadcasters, the wives and girlfriends and would-be girlfriends, fans meticulously observant and lovingly, fanatically obsessed. Here too are the teams of storied greatness — the Yankees, the Dodgers, the Red Sox — and the luminaries who made them legendary.

    Unforgettable portraits of icons such as Christy Matthewson, Babe Ruth, Ted Williams, and Jackie Robinson are joined by glimpses of lesser-known characters such as the erudite Moe Berg, who could speak a dozen languages “but couldn’t hit in any of them.”

    Poems included in Baseball: A Literary Anthology include indispensable works whose phrases have entered the language — Ernest Thayer’s “Casey at the Bat” and Franklin P. Adams’s “Baseball’s Sad Lexicon” — as well as more recent offerings from May Swenson, Yusef Komunyakaa, and Martin Espada. Testimonies from classic oral histories offer insights into the players who helped enshrine the sport in the American imagination. Spot reporting by Heywood Broun and Damon Runyon stands side by side with journalistic profiles that match baseball legends with some of our finest writers: John Updike on Ted Williams, Gay Talese on Joe DiMaggio, Red Smith on Lefty Grove.
