The team was losing and fans were disappointed. People were losing hope. But then, Casey came to home base to bat- the crowd went wild. Casey was confident. He and his fans knew that he could get the team a win.
That ain't my style!
However, Casey's confidence turned into arrogance. He started acting cocky. He let a ball fly past him, then another.
KILL THE UMPIRE!
Casey had spent so much time making himself look good. When he finally bat at the third ball, he swung with all his might but, "STRIKE THREE!", Casey had struck out. There was no joy in Mudville that day.
