A visual re-interpretation the poem “Casey at the Bat.” Every baseball fan knows Ernest Thayer’s famous 1888 poem and I’ve seen many artistic interpretations over the years. I didn’t want to do a single drawing of Casey striking out or striding to the plate or any other single moment in the poem. I wanted to do something bigger: I wanted to depict the ENTIRE Mudville 9 ball club. Since the poem takes place in 1888, I immediately thought of those beautiful Victorian team composites that had once hung in every bar and tavern back then. So that’s exactly what I did. Measuring 21×24 inches, the Mudville 9 would look right at home behind a Victorian-era bar.
