Boog City 37, Oct. 2006

Available Saturday

**About this month’s paper:

Boog City 37 is the press’s latest baseball issue. I 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, and
write a poem about them.

**This issue is 50% larger than our usual size**
