Turnstyle is the journal of baseball arts and literature produced by SABR’s Baseball and the Arts Research Committee. The long-awaited third issue is now available for all to enjoy. Featuring over 20 poems, and over 40 total pieces of fiction and creative essays, the issue also includes over 40 original photographs, paintings, and illustrations.

Following in the tradition of publications such as Elysian Fields Quarterly, The Minneapolis Review of Baseball, and Spitball, Turnstyle continues the tradition of sharing baseball literature, artwork, and imagery. Writers, artists, poets, photographers, and others participate in and reflect on baseball and the arts. The first issue of Turnstyle interspersed contemporary creations by SABR members with examples of baseball literature from the past, while Issue 2 was filled entirely with contemporary works. With Issue 3, the number of submissions was so voluminous that work on Issue 4 has already begun!

For many of us, the spectre of COVID-19 meant that attending baseball games was not an option; solitude and quarantine became the norm. During the pandemic, a great number of SABR bards, biographers, photographers, memoirists, storytellers, and artists put pen to paper, brush to canvas, and fingers to keyboard. May we now enjoy the fruits of their labors.

This issue includes poems by Kalwinder Singh Dhindsa and Ron Kaplan, essays by Margie Lawrence, Norman L. Macht, and George Skornickel, paintings by Paul Borelli, Adam Korengold, and David Holden, and a photo essay on Hinchliffe Stadium by Donna Muscarella, along with many additional contributions by John Jakicic, Joey Nicoletti, Richard M. Campbell Jr., Dick Butler, Francis Kinlaw, John L. Green, Gabriel Bogart, Matthew Perry, Peter M. Gordon, George Skornickel, Joseph Stanton, William B. (Bryan) Steverson, Jared Wyllys, Duane Victor Keilstrup, Jack Buck, Ryan Isaac, Bruce Harris, Adam Young, Paul Moorehead, Jason A. Schwartz, Kyle Newman, and Justin Klugh.
