Casey at the Bat is a 1927 silent film starring Wallace Beery and featuring Ford Sterling, Zasu Pitts, and Sterling Holloway. The film was directed by Monte Brice and loosely based on the baseball poem "Casey at the Bat" written by Ernest Thayer.[1] [2]

Surviving period advertisements indicates Eddie Sutherland may have been slated as director before Brice.
