Baseball, I Gave You All the Best Years of My Life
Richard Grossinger, Lisa Conrad
North Atlantic Books, 1992 - Sports & Recreation - 172 pages
This book includes Donald Hall, Jack Kerouac, Robert Kelly, Bill Lee, Paul Metcalf, Anne Waldman, Tom Clark, and Bernadette Mayer. The quality of the work in this anthology varies widely, but the sheer unlikeliness of a volume of neo-beat baseball poetry and new-age-inflected essays cannot help but inspire generosity. The photography is remarkable, and the photo essays of baseball stars of the 1950s and 1960s have this awe-inspiring sense of the mundane about them.

Review: Baseball I Gave You All the Best Years of My LifeUser Review - Logan - Goodreads
SUX! Just a bunch of BAD poetry and prose about baseball. And it's not really that it's sentimental or anything like that, it's just BAD writing, for the most part. My offseason baseball reading is batting .000 so far. SUX! Read full review
