Casey at the Bat 1899

  • 3.2
Things were different in the early days of baseball. Or were they? In this fragment from 1899, the titular Casey gets a bad call from the umpire and the batter decides that fisticuffs are necessary (or, put differently, the batsman decides to batter the umpire).

Classic early baseball footage

Best 1899 baseball film ever. Kill the umpire!

I love most things baseball.

They have the hand-eye coordination of geese.

A masterpiece of brevity...
