Casey at the Bat quandary?

In the sempiternal poem, I always wondered -- with Flynn on third, Blake on second, and two outs with Mudville's top slugger, Casey, "at the bat" (so to speak), why didn't the opposing team walk Casey to set up a force at any base? Sounds a bit Grady-Little-ish to me. I guess it worked out well for them.

Maybe Casey was the No. 9 hitter. Then again, he was called the "Might Casey," so I guess not. In any event, good use of the word "sempiternal."

The "Mighty" Casey, that is.

Wow. Thorn managed to get through "sempiternal," but couldn't manage "Mighty."

There's a lesson in there somewhere.
