Biographical Information[edit]

Sean Casey played twelve seasons in the major leagues, hitting .302. He finished three times in the top ten in the league in batting average. He scored 100+ runs twice and although he never had 100+ RBI he twice had 99.

He was one of the best hitters with runners in scoring position; he hit .367 with men on in 2000, .356 in 2001 and .336 in 2003.

In the 2006 World Series he hit .529 (9 for 17) for the Detroit Tigers.

Primarily a first baseman, Casey never won a Gold Glove but was on three All-Star teams.

Casey was at the University of Richmond from 1993-1995 and then hit well over .300 each year in the minors until he became a major league regular.

Casey is the only player to record the first ever hit at two major league ballparks, turning the trick in April 2001 at Miller Park and PNC Park.

In February 2011, Casey was at work on building a Miracle League park in Upper St. Clair, PA.

In his first year of eligibility for the Hall of Fame in 2014, he failed to receive a single vote and dropped off the ballot.

In late 2013/early 2014, Casey suffered a blood clot, which split and went into both lungs; while almost everybody who has this happens dies, Casey survived. [1]
