Casey at the Bat
And Other Diamond Tales
In 1953, legendary cartoonist Willard Mullin illustrated one of America's best-loved poems: Ernest Thayer's "Casey at the Bat." The illustrations by Mullin were thought to have been lost, but were found at an auction in 2002. This edition will include additional Mullin material like the "Fan's Alphabet" and the poems "Iron Horse Lou" and "O Brooklyn, My Brooklyn". With a foreword by Yogi Berra and an essay on the history of both "Casey" and Mullin's images by baseball historian Tim Wiles, this edition of "Casey" is a perfect gift book for the baseball fan in your life!
