“At last, two of my loves - baseball and classical music - united at last. This is a wonderful piece that the entire family will enjoy. Besides, they've got Casey wearing pinstripes.” – George M. Steinbrenner III, New York Yankees

Casey at the Bat
Music by Stephen Simon
London Philharmonic Orchestra
When the Mudville Nine are almost certain to lose the game, Mighty Casey takes his turn at bat, and the fans hold their breath as each pitch is thrown. The upbeat, jazzy music performed by the London Philharmonic Orchestra is highlighted by cheering crowds, vendors hawking their wares, the cheers of spectators and the sounds of the ball being hit, which bring the story to life.
The enclosed 24-page activity book contains the complete Ernst Lawrence Thayer poem, amazing facts about baseball, sheet music, games and puzzles!
Album also includes a Suzuki tango play-along, “In a Cabin in a Wood” song, and Flight of the Rabbit, as story in music in less than 3 minutes.
