Boog City 37 is the press’s latest baseball issue. We assembled 25
poets, the number of people on a baseball roster. Each poet was then
assigned a different position on the team and asked to pick anyone who
had ever played their position, be they in Major League Baseball, the
Negro Leagues, the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League,
the minor leagues, college, the schoolyard, or anywhere else. Copies
will be available for free at the event and throughout the East
Village, and Greenpoint and Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
