A poem by Ernest Lawrence Thayer from the late nineteenth century about Casey, an arrogant, overconfident baseball player who brings his team down to defeat by refusing to swing at the first two balls pitched to him and then missing on the third. The poem’s final line is, “There is no joy in Mudville — mighty Casey has struck out.”
