Walt Whitman wrote: I see great things in Baseball. Poet Rodney Torreson also sees great things, especially the New York Yankees. The Ripening of Pinstripes distills poetry from the history, drama and off-beat moments of the Bronx Bombers. From Babe Ruth's legendary called shot to shaking Billy Martin's surly hand, Torreson's poems teem with Yankee greats, gamers, scrubs, and scapegoats. The grit and ache of nine innings are squeezed onto each page -- and even God gets into the act when He plucks up Yankee Stadium and wears it as a ring. The Ripening of Pinstripes also includes an extensive notes section. A must for any Yankee, baseball, or poetry fan.
