* MisaimedFandom: There are a lot of fan works out there that rewrite the ending of the poem to have Casey hit the ball, never mind that the structure of the poem is like a classical tragedy where Casey's FatalFlaw is choosing not to hit the first two pitches out of pride, bringing his strikeout on himself. ** One such fan work, "Casey's Revenge" by legendary sportswriter Grantland Rice, acts as a sequel to the original. Casey's climactic strikeout marks the start of a prolonged batting slump for him, whereas the pitcher who struck him out goes on a tear and becomes the talk of the league. When said pitcher's team returns to Mudville--with the pitcher, not the home team, as the marquee attraction--he and Casey find themselves in a similar situation to their earlier duel (last out of the game, multiple runners on base, Casey as the winning run, two strikes against him) but this time Casey comes through with a tape-measure home run. --->"But no one ever found the ball that mighty Casey hit."

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: TheOtherWiki's article on "Casey at the Bat" puts forth someone's claim that stanzas were removed that indicate that Casey threw the game, winking at his uncle before the critical pitch. His uncle had been taking bets.

reworked examples & removed unneeded spoler tag
** One such fan work acted as a ''sequel'' to the original, where Casey's striking out was the start of a major slump that lasted over a year, and it takes a similar situation (at home, against the same opposing pitcher, last out of the game, multiple runners on base, himself as the winning run, two strikes against him) for Casey to redeem himself and get back his confidence. * WhatAnIdiot: [[spoiler: Casey decides to be slick and let the first two pitches fly rather than hit them, confident he can hit the last ball. Yeah, you should've taken those first pitches, Casey.]]

I remember a "sequel" penned by someone else, printed in at least two different publications....
