Casey at the Bat is a 1927 American silent film, directed by Monte Brice, written by Ernest Thayer and based on the 1888 baseball poem of the same name. The picture stars Wallace Beery, Ford Sterling, ZaSu Pitts and Sterling Holloway in his film debut.[1][2][3] Surviving period advertisements indicate Eddie Sutherland may have been slated as director before Brice. A copy was preserved at the Library of Congress.[4][5]
