I have heard of Casey at the Bat for many, many years but this is the first time I have actually read the poem. Like the introductory article states, one expects Casey to be the hero. This is a nice little book with the poem and showing the original illustrations that accompanied it. However, it is really a tribute to Willard Mullin and his many years of illustrations and poems about baseball.
