This week we are joined by longtime MLB hitting machine Sean Casey. Nicknamed “The Mayor” and known for being a great guy, Casey hit .302 over his 12 year career in the big leagues. Before getting drafted in the 2nd round by the Indians in 1995, he led all of Division 1 College Baseball in hitting with a .461 average for the University of Richmond. It’s safe to say he knows a little bit about hitting and playing the game the right way.
I want to give a ‘tip of the cap’ to JP and Kevin from Green Diamond Gallery (greatest baseball memorabilia collection outside of Cooperstown) for asking these questions for NLB after one of their events. Also, many thanks to Sean Casey for taking the time to talk about hitting, hustle and his advice to ballplayers looking to take their game to the next level.
Before we start here is a great Sean Casey interview quote for your locker:
“If you can’t give your teammates four (hard) seconds down the line, than you shouldn’t be wearing the uniform.”
