My Sean Casey All Star story…
So every all star game each player is given one of their home jerseys to autograph for a charity auction for the MLBPA.
Each year you autograph that jersey and afterwards they collect them and auction them off.
The year in question, Sean gets his jersey, and somehow he is out a jersey or two and ends up autographing the only jersey he has left.
Now he realizes that not only does he not have the jersey for the auction, but he’s autographed the jersey he has to play the all star game in…..
He tells the story and it generates a huge laugh, and I then comment that since he autographed it, he should take a black sharpee into the field with him when he plays, and have each player that gets to first base autograph his shirt as well.
He actually TOOK the black sharpee in his pocket, onto the field with him. I am not sure who he told, but I know he told more than one player about it, and it was hilarious to watch guys at first base start cracking up as he told them the story.
So in the end he got the better of everyone because he had players autographing his jersey while they were standing on first base.
Good stuff and again, this guy is one in a million. Nicest guy you’d ever want to meet and a hell of a player. He’ll be a great addition on and off the field here.
