AUTHOR:Ernest Lawrence Thayer (1863– ?)
QUOTATION:        “Strike one” the Umpire said.
From the bleachers black with people there rose a sullen roar,
Like the beating of the storm-waves on a stern and distant shore,
“Kill him! Kill the Umpire!” shouted some one from the stand—
And it ’s likely they ’d have done it had not Casey raised his hand.
ATTRIBUTION:Casey at the Bat.
