THE NIGHT CASEY WAS BORN Reviewed in Elysian Fields Quarterly
Baseball season is underway and the "Opening Day" issue of the fine literary journal Elysian Fields Quarterly: The Baseball Review is on newsstands now. Included in this issue is David Shiner's excellent review of The Night Casey Was Born, titled "How Mudville Found America." The Night Casey Was Born, written by John Evangelist Walsh, tells the true story of the great American ballad Casey at the Bat. "A pleasant and informative read," writes Shiner. "The pace is brisk and appealing, and there's enough diamond action to keep fans happy."
