The imaginative fantasy poem shows significant love of baseball. 'Is it better to be a poet or a baseball star? ' is the question asked.

A beautiful picture of a baseball star in dream. Perfectly scenically painting every event with explicit imagination. Well written work.

It's a novel idea to imagine Randall Jarrell as a baseball star. A dream-like poem, one that I like.
