wonderful story :smile:

When Sean Casey left following Monday night’s game against the Red Sox, the Detroit first baseman didn’t return to the team hotel with the rest of the Tigers. Instead, he caught a ride to Lawrence in anticipation of a 6 a.m. wake-up call to prepare to feed the hungry at Cor Unum Meal Center.
The center is run by the Labels Are For Jars organization (labelsareforjars.org) that Casey helped fund and found back in 2001 with his friend, the Rev. Paul O’Brien. The doors opened last autumn, but yesterday marked the first time Casey had been able to be in action and help feed, and then clean up after, more than 75 people.

Sean Casey has always been a great person.

He was also voted the friendliest player in baseball in a players poll in SI. He received 46% of the votes. For what its worth, Thome came in 2nd followed by Mike Sweeney, Dave Roberts, and David Ortiz. The least friendly were Bonds, Jeff Kent, AJ, A-Rod, Randy Johnson.

Casey is in great company with guys like that. I'm glad you see this featured more and more with MLB. The NFL does an incredible job of marketing their efforts, MLB should do the same with their players.


"The least friendly were Bonds, Jeff Kent, AJ, A-Rod, Randy Johnson."

Ok, Kent, Bonds, and Johnson I can see them being unfriendly. I think A-Rod and AJ get the "worst" treatment due to who they are, versus anything they do or don't do.

He used to do stuff like that when he played for the Reds which is why the Cincy community was sad to see him go.

Damn, I hate it when a guy who plays on an enemy team does something nice. This reminds me of how I felt when I heard that Reggie Miller does a lot of charity work.

If any of you know for a fact that a Twins player is a really nice, good-hearted guy, please keep it to yourselves. :redneck

He's on pace for 30 extra base hits this year. Yes. 30. All year. Maggs has like 29 already. I don't know how that's supposed to make you feel but it sure puts a dent in my positive feelings. He's a first baseman! I think neifi perez would do better.

I was wondering how long it was going to take you to respond to this thread.

He might be a good guy off the field, but I'm guessing if he doesn't start producing offensively, then DD will be going out to look for a replacement.
