Kansas City, MO – America's Pastime comes to a close for another year in October with the Major League Baseball World Series. We pay tribute to the game and those who love it with this anthology show featuring poetry and stories about baseball, including works by Donald Hall, Martin Espada, Jonathan Holden, Maxine Kumin, and Billy Lombardo, along with an interview featuring the late Negro Leagues great, Buck O'Neil after the release of his autobiography, "I Was Right on Time."
