Classic autobiography of the unique manager Casey Stengel shows the joy and pain ghostwriter Harry T. Paxton experienced in writing the project.
On this Martin Luther King Jr. day, we present a special poem by Ron Gabriel that is a take on the famous “Casey at the Bat.” However, this poem looks at Jackie Robinson and comes with a decidedly different ending. Special thanks to Richard Zamoff for sharing.
The ending is the same, but ‘Casey at the Bat’ remains a thrill of a read 125 years later. You might also be surprised at the related collectibles to the poem, who might have inspired the character of Casey and where you’ll see his likeness in museums and ballparks.
