Ernest Lawrence Thayer's classic poem "Casey at the Bat" is perhaps the greatest baseball story of all time. Period.
The only possible criticism one could make of the story is the lack of personality exhibited by the titular titan, Casey.
Casey is shown to take the game seriously, but beneath his muscular exterior he is simply a nice guy. And that is really, really, boring.
With that in mind, I humbly submit a slightly modified version of the story, featuring the most tragically misunderstood player in the history of baseball—Milton Bradley.
