we memorized this poem in 6th grade each student had a paragraph to learn and we stood up in front of the class and said our paragraph. Fond memories from this poem. Thank you to the author!

I was in the fifth grade when I stood before the class and recited this poem. As you might guess, I was a BASEBALL NERD....Crazy About BASEBALL! ! ! Needless to say, I aced this poem, and baseball authority. I also let the class know that I was a NEW YORK Yankee FAN. During those days, there were only eight teams in each league. American and National. Washington was always first in peace and last in the American League.

Wasn't the opposing team: Centerville, and wasn't the opposing pitcher Snedeker? Somehow that runs in my mind?

Just like the Bible says pride is before a crash, And a haughty spirit before stumbling. Poor, poor haughty, prideful Casey.......
