Casey at the Bat, by Ernest Lawrence Thayer, is likely the single most recognized writing on baseball. Originally published in the San Francisco Examiner on June 3, 1888, this timeless piece carries the same popularity over a hundred years later. The beloved Casey, Mudville's finest, displays a confident arrogance while learning an important lesson in humility. In his first published children's book project, illustrator Chris Bell brings new life to this historic tale of America's greatest pastime.

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.

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!

It had been only twenty-four hours since Mighty Casey struck out, plunging fans of the Mudville team into gloom and despair. But a new game day dawned, and Casey once again proved his might with a homer in the eighth. The Mudville nine took a one-run lead, but in the bottom of the ninth, their hurler walked three straight. Bases loaded and the starting pitcher spent, the Mudville manager was not bullish about his bullpen. With the game on the line, he called for rookie Joy Armstrong to take the mound. Could she bring joy to Mudville again—and prove that a girl can play ball as well as any boy?

K.C. AT THE BAT is a fun, new story that follows the tradition of the original 19th-century verse, "Casey at the Bat." It tells of a baseball game between teams representing two fictional neighboring towns, somewhere in a rural part of Texas. The storyline is not limited to a mere half-inning of play. In K.C. AT THE BAT, author David W. Coleman projects the magic of the original "Casey" format over a full, nine-inning ballgame. It is a lively and entertaining account of baseball action in the familiar, iambic pentameter form. K.C. AT THE BAT is a work that can be shared by both adults and children. It is a book that a parent can read aloud to a child, that a child can learn to read on his or her own, and that a child can also read aloud back to his or her parents. K.C.AT THE BAT, while entertaining, can also be used to broaden the vocabulary – and thus, the knowledge – of any child reader, or even an adult!
