Ernest Thayer's "Casey at the Bat" was first published in the San Francisco Daily Examiner on June 3, 1888. Its popularity owed much to the universality of its subject; every city seemed to have a "Casey" on its team. Thayer, a Harvard graduate, said little about the real Casey, though he did leave a few clues. "The verses owe their existence," he wrote in 1930, "to my enthusiasm for college baseball...and to my association with Will Hearst." Thayer's background is examined here as the basis for determining the origins of the colorfast cast of characters behind his "Ballad of the Republic"--men who may have been "Casey," "Flynn," "Cooney" and other members of the Mudville Nine.

Since its publication in 1888, mystery continues to cast a shadow on the thirteen stanzas of Ernest Lawrence Thayer's classic poem, Casey at the Bat. For over a century, his compelling lines have touched the hearts of all who have suffered despair from swinging and missing at a third strike pitch. But, is there noticeable absence sensed in Thayer's rhymes as they humbly hang in display at the Baseball Hall of Fame? Shouldn't additional details accompany his timeless work? Who was Casey? What was his past? And, maybe more importantly, what was Casey's future after that sympathetic strikeout propelled him into literary history. What if his tale mirrored the others that have had their ancestral facts uncovered in the search to ascertain new information? The revelation of truth can only allow both the living and the dead to rest in peace. But, when missing evidence disallows the summation of a final tally, imaginative writing is at times called upon to fictionalize accounts and appease a starved public. And, so it shall be with the saga of They Called Me Casey.

This entertaining but scholarly book is a study of the historical and literary record of Casey at the Bat. Eugene Murdock begins with the poem's 1888 publication and theatrical debut. He considers the lively debates over authorship, rivalry among players calling themselves Casey, and communities claiming to be Mudville. He then details the poem's literary impact. Murdock includes some seventy Casey poems by other writers, organizing them by subject: the pitcher who struck Casey out, Casey's redemption, parodies, an opera, and more. In conclusion, Murdock reviews the entire subject and comments on Casey's role in history and folklore.

MUDVILLE—what a sad state it was in. Casey, the town's great baseball hero, had swung beautifully and mightily at the final pitch, only to have the ball disappear into the soft folds of the waiting catcher's mitt. Game over! The agony of defeat cuts so deep. In his immortal poem, "Casey at the Bat," Ernest Thayer pulled the proverbial rug out from beneath our feet. Just when it seemed certain Casey would win it all, all is lost. But Thayer once said, “hope springs eternal within the human breast.” Perhaps there can be another day, perhaps there can be another game, and perhaps there may be another chance for Casey. In 1906 Grantland Rice penned a sequel to "Casey at the Bat" entitled "Casey's Revenge." Rice was a famous sportswriter in the first half of the 20th century and a great fan of baseball. In this edition of "Casey's Revenge," Jim Hull once again entertains us with the same stunning detail and wild perspective baseball fans across the nation enjoyed as they looked through his drawings for Dover Publication's illustrated book, Casey at the Bat. As Casey digs in at the plate, you'll see a curve ball that really curves, what a pitcher looks like from behind Casey's front teeth, and a glimpse of the stands filled with ten thousand fans! Hang onto your hat—it's quite an adventure!
