DPF / Hall

For baseball, from The Old Life.

from The Thirteenth Inning / by Donald Hall

When the moon rises, light standards cast eldritch shadows
on players who cast no shadows, and we observe four
transparent pitchers superimposed on each other,
from ghostly Babe Ruth past Cy Young and Smokey Joe Wood
to Parson Lewis.
