    Need help! 8 minutes of (baseball or sports) poetry for HS "debate class"?

    Can you suggest sports poetry - eight (8) minutes worth of poetry for a HS "debate class"? ( doesn't have to be just ONE poem -- it can be a group or collection of poems). Students have to recite.

    Thanks in advance,
    Steddie

    This is a good link here:

    I'm particularly fond of the Marianne Moore and Gregory Corso poems myself, but there are a lot of good ones there. Good luck!

    I wonder if Marianne Moore ever wrote a poem about her fellow Gettysburg, PA resident Eddie Plank.
