Willard Mullin's Casey at the Bat and Other Diamond TalesBook - 2015
"The Mighty Casey, the archetypal slugger, has fascinated artists for more than 125 years--since Ernest Thayer's original poem was published in 1888. Here, for the first time in book form, is the even mightier Willard Mullin, 'Dean of American sports cartooning' and 'Rembrandt of the Sports Page,' with his own take on baseball's most immortal piece of literature. Also featured are several other examples of Mullin's unique contributions to the language and lexicon of the sport, as well as an introduction by Yankee Hall of Famer Yogi Berra, and appearances by Lou Gehrig, Sal Maglie, and Mullin's most enduring creation, the Brooklyn Bum"--Page 4 of cover.
