“On the Road” was really about splitsThe guy who wrote this:
They danced down the streets like dingledodies, and I shambled after as I've been doing all my life after people who interest me, because the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones that never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn...
Was really into fantasy baseball. Sort of. Just read it.
(thanks to John Walsh for the heads up)

As a fan of both baseball and Kerouac, it is fascinating to read about his uniquely conceptual interest in and knowledge of the game.
I may be wrong (as it has awhile since I’ve read it) but I believe in “Desolation Angels” he describes the details of one of these games while he worked in isolation in a mountaintop lookout tower.
Thanks for the great read, Craig!

That is amazing.
I had read in a Kerouac biography that he had these imaginaty games but had never seen the actual evidence.
Those pictures made my day. For all the dabbling in drugs, sex and such, Kerouac was quite an innocent at heart.
