  • Sorry if off topic -- can you suggest sports/ baseball poems?

    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

    Tinker Evers to Chance was a poem about the Cubs infield in the 1900's.
    "(Shoeless Joe Jackson's fall from grace is one of the real tragedies of baseball. I always thought he was more sinned against than sinning." -- Connie Mack

    "I have the ultimate respect for Whitesox fans. They were as miserable as the Cubs and Redsox fans ever were but always had the good decency to keep it to themselves. And when they finally won the World Series, they celebrated without annoying every other fan in the country."--Jim Caple, ESPN (Jan. 12, 2011)
