SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 2:00 P.M.The Los Angeles Bards, one of the legendary teams on the Southern California sporting scene, returns to Pasadena for the first time since 2002, when its lineup of heavy-hitting and rubber-armed literary figures was recorded for posterity on the CD, The Los Angeles Bards Live in Pasadena. For Poetry Ball, the Bards will once again take their swings at the national pastime, reading a crackerjack selection of baseball poetry and prose.
