MUDVILLEwhat a sad state it was in. Casey, the towns 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 catchers 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 Caseys Revenge. Rice was a famous sportswriter in the first half of the 20th century and a great fan of baseball. In this edition of Caseys 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 Publications illustrated book, Casey at the Bat. As Casey digs in at the plate, youll see a curve ball that really curves, what a pitcher looks like from behind Caseys front teeth, and a glimpse of the stands filled with ten thousand fans! Hang onto your hatits quite an adventure!
