The Mayor goes on the air


Sean Casey, an Upper St. Clair native who played for the Pirates in 2006, will join the MLB Network. An official announcement will come tomorrow.

Casey retired last week, ending a 12-year career which included stints with the Cleveland Indians (1997), Cincinnati Reds (1998-2005), Pirates, Detroit Tigers (2006-07) and Boston Red Sox (2008).

Casey was one of the nicest, most accessible players in the game and was nicknamed, “The Mayor.” He has a .302 career batting average with 1,531 hits in 1,405 games.
