Sean Casey

After twelve seasons in MLB, “The Mayor” is retiring.

Free agent first baseman Sean Casey has decided to hang it up in favor of joining the MLB Network on-air talent staff. The 34-year-old Casey will retire with his final team being the Boston Red Sox. Casey made the announcement official on radio station WEEI 850 in Boston on Sunday.

Over twelve years he played for the Indians, Reds, Pirates, Tigers, and Red Sox. The bulk of his career was with the Reds (1998-2005) and he was an All-Star in 1999, 2001, and 2004.

Over 12 seasons he averaged .302, 1531 Hits, with 735 RBIs, and 130 HRs. He hit .322 in 69 games for the Red Sox last season.

Casey joins a glut of former players that have joined the new MLB Network, including Harold Reynolds, Al Leiter, Barry Larkin, Mitch Williams, and Don Plesac.
