Casey at the Bat 125 #2 -- June 6, 2013

June 3 was the 125th anniversary of the publication of Ernest Lawrence Thayer's poem "Casey at the Bat" in the San Francisco Examiner on 03-June-1888. The poem was published under the pseudonym Phin, so the issue of who wrote it was debated for years. The poem was constantly reprinted in newspapers. This illustrated version is from the 20-April-1902 Saint Paul Globe.  Be sure to click on the image to see a larger version.
