"Casey at the Bat" is a legendary poem about the crushing defeat of a small-town baseball hero. For the first time, John Evangelist Walsh gives the story behind the poem and its young journalist author, as well as its inaugural performance in 1888 in New York's Wallack's Theater. The Night Casey was Born is a portrait of America in the earliest years of its love affair with baseball.

"This history of the mighty Casey hits it out of the park." --Baltimore Sun

"A delightful book that explores the poem and its author, as well as the baseball and theater culture of the 1880s." --The Los Angeles Times
