GUEST SPEAKER: SEAN CASEY
Known as “The Mayor”, Sean Casey is one of most outgoing and likeable players ever to wear a Cincinnati Reds uniform!
Sean Casey exploded onto the Cincinnati scene in 1999, endearing himself to the city. It was a career-year for Casey—the Reds first baseman batted .332, smacked 25 homers, drove in 99, scored 103 runs, had 197 hits and doubled 42 times. He was a 6’4” left-handed hitting first baseman and the most popular player on the team.
A 3-time National League All-Star during his Cincinnati Red tenure, Casey batted .302 with 130 home runs and 735 RBI in his career. He’s remembered for a tremendous role model, a genuinely friendly guy that always seemed to have time from everyone. He now appears on the MLB Network.
Come hear Sean share stories of his time in Major League Baseball and reflect on the value of leadership skills in baseball—and in Scouting.
