The hand-carved figure of "Casey" is animated by a music mechanism that plays "Take me out to the Ballgame", and rotates after swinging and missing, missing the last strike. The ball has been dropped at the plate by the catcher and is still turning.

This was an invitational piece in the AAW-sponsored "Step Up to the Plate" exhibit that premiered at the AAW Symposium in Louisville in 2006.

An artist-signed original copy of the exhibit brochure and a copy of the Poem "Casey at the Bat" by Ernest Lawrence Thayer in Plexiglas stands are all part of this donation.

S. Gary Roberts is a Founding Member Number 16 of the AAW. 1998 recipient of the Honorary Lifetime Membership award. Honorary Life Member of the South West Area Turners (SWAT), Central Texas Woodturners, North Texas Woodturners, Rio Grande Woodturners, Central Texas Wood Carvers & Texas Woodcarver Guild.
