Description Mighty Casey was a baseball giant who, at his moment of potential triumph, approached the plate with arrogance and confidence and then struck out at bat. Ernest Lawrence Thayer's poem, "Casey at the Bat," became an American classic due to the oratory skills of a performer named William DeWolf Hopper, who claimed to have recited it over 10,000 times.
