" I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as strike three."


This is the place where you can contribute any kind of literary sports work; poems, sonnets, songs, novellas, short stories, excerpts from other works of sports literature, discussion on books and movies (hey, it's media!) written on sports....

I know this is a wacky concept, but I can't be the only writer-sports fan around. I just can't be.

This place is maintained by deathbytamarind, or DBT, as I've been called.
