William Schuman The Mighty Casey (1953)
The day of the big baseball game finds Centerville playing Mudville for the State championship. The great player Casey comes to bat for Mudville, which is behind in the bottom of the ninth. Casey swings mightily, but in the end, to his fans’ dismay, he strikes out.
