Casey at the Bat: A Ballad of the Republic Sung in the Year 1888
Ernest Lawrence Thayer
It’s the ninth inning, two outs, and the Mudville Nine are down 4 to 2 with two men on base. The mighty Casey advances to the bat. He’ll shatter the air with a vigorous whack and come bounding home to the adoration of his teammates and fans. Or will he? This newly illustrated version of Ernest L. Thayer’s classic baseball poem, written in 1888, captures the anxious hope of fans yearning for victory.
