Sean Casey Retires

Posted by Bob Biscigliano in

According to a report on ESPN, former Detroit Tigers 1B/DH is going to retire and join the MLB Network as an analyst. Casey was one of the good guys in the major leagues, as most people referred to him as "the Mayor." I certainly enjoyed his short stint with the Tigers and although I never spoke with him personally, I thought he was a great guy and an even better guy to have on your team.

Casey made a healthy career by slapping singles to every hole on the diamond with an occasional extra base hit here and there. He finished his career with a more than honorable .302 BA. His single season best BA was .332 with the Reds in 1999. He also had 99 RBI that year.

He will be missed dearly in any clubby that was lucky enough to have him. All is not lost though, as fans will have the distinct privilege to hear his thoughts about what's going on around the league and in general.

Here is just a small 2 minute dosage of what to expect from "The Mayor" on the MLB Network
