When this blog was first conceived in my imagination, it was as a sort of resource for baseball/literary info. I was thinking I’d review all the current baseball books and movies and so on and so forth. I thought it’d be part library, part commentary. Turns out, other than the greatly ignored Mixtape and Poems of the Week, P&P is all commentary. And thanks to Ron Kaplan’s Baseball Bookshelf, that’s fine.
It’s fine, because the Bookshelf is really everything this blog wants to be but can’t. Ron Kaplan — according to his bio a NJ based writer and editor — covers baseball journalism, literature, film, and even videogames so extensively that my doing it would be futile anyway. So go check out his blog, it’s a veritable baseball cornucopia.
(Make sure you come back though.)
