Casey at the Bat is a theater piece for narrator and symphony orchestra, composed by conductor Stephen Simon in 1976 for the Bicentennial. This engaging, upbeat score is set to the famous poem by Thayer, "Casey at the Bat". The orchestra not only plays the music but also takes the parts of the hotdog salesman, the beer and program sellers, the umpire, and the crowd. This work is an American classic!

"...a fresh and dramatic reading of the classic baseball tale...but most noteworthy is the musical lesson it provides..."
​- Washington Post

"Ernest Lawrence Thayer's classic American poem about a swaggering baseball hero whose turn at bat left 'no joy in Mudville' is given the same deft treatment by composer-conductor Stephen Simon..." - Los Angeles Times

"Simon does a wonderful job of transporting his audience to the ballpark where Casey is playing on a summer day."
- Chicago Parent

"At last, two of my loves - baseball and classical music - united at last. This is a wonderful piece that the entire family will enjoy." - New York Yankees, George Steinbrenner
