Poetry in motion
The poem Casey at the Bat by Ernest Lawrence Thayer is a classic. You can read the poem on the Baseball Almanac’s Web site at baseball-almanac.com/poetry/po_case.shtml. The poem, printed in the San Francisco Examiner in 1885, is considered one of the best baseball poems ever written. Now it is your turn to write a poem about baseball in Tampa Bay.
