Three baseball classics:

  • Casey at the bat (Thayer/Phinn)

Ernest L Thayer (writing under the pen name “Phinn”) wrote the baseball classic Casey at the Bat: “A Ballad of the Republic, Sung in the Year 1888″ for the San Fransisco Examiner. In the century since, the poem has spawned hundreds of sequels, including a handful of updates by sports columnist Grantland Rice.

Just in time for baseball season 2005! Read by Alex Wilson.
