    The Catch

    The Catch

    Vic Wertz smashes a line
    drive, deep into centerfield,
    a sure homerun in most ballparks,
    but not in the exaggerated
    confines of the Polo Grounds,
    with Willie Mays on patrol.

    Turning about-face,...

    Yom Kippur

    He chose not to pitch on Yom Kippur, game 1 of the World Series, 1965; A poignant asterisk by a great athlete, that baseball is, after all, only a game.

    Yet, for the Jews, every pitch sang of the redemption; in...

    King of Diamonds

    A portrait of a king and prince,
    Christy Mathewson & his son,
    shaking hands in the sublime

    Solar Flare

    In Theory


    The professor began his approach to the plate, nearing the speed of light,

    and time stood still...

    Roar of Victory

    The Roar of Victory


    A row of premium seats,
    field level behind home plate,cordoned off;
    Sold out, standing room only;
    covetous eyes watering in resentment,
