Sean Casey Retires at Age 34

Jake KarmelCorrespondent IIJanuary 26, 2009

I remember the days of playing MLB video games on PlayStation 2 and always wanting to play with either the Indians or Reds. Depending on which team now former first basemen, Sean Casey was playing for. Sean Casey was one of those hardcore, hard nosed ball players that everyone who loved the game idolized.

Casey, who had stints with Cleveland, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, Detroit, and Boston, ended his career with a lifetime batting average of .302, 130 career home runs, and 735 RBIs. Casey was elected to three all-star games and in 1999, had a career year batting .332 and 25 home runs.

In my opinion, Casey is not exactly a hall of famer but in my opinion he was one of the most original, hard-nosed ball players that I can remember seeing for as long as I've watched the game of baseball.
