Fungoes and Fastballs

Phil Cousineau, a longtime fan, player, and coach of baseball, combines his sketches with baseball haiku--short, punchy poems that celebrate the marvelous moments that are at the heart of this American pastime.

Cousineau's one-of-a-kind collection of baseball haiku, Fungoes and Fastballs, is for anyone who loves the game and wants to savor the moments.

eighteen kids race to third base
to see the silly gopher
