Batter Up!

If opening day for Baseball is important to you, then make sure you read a classic poem to celebrate America’s favorite sport. Ernest Lawrence Thayer's Casey at the bat : a ballad of the Republic sung in the year 1888 is a baseball poem that is a must-read for adults and children alike. It is as entertaining today as it was way back when. The poem was originally published in the San Francisco Examiner on June 3, 1888. Since that time it has been recited in Vaudeville, on stage, in the movies, and on television. There’s even a sequel to the poem that tells about our mighty batter’s most magnificent moment. Enjoy.
