Is Mike Casiano Baseball's Biggest Fan?


Mike Casiano at Guaranteed Rate Field

In February 2018 I wrote about the passing of Fuzzy who was New York's greatest sports fan as he likely attended over 10,000 baseball, basketball, and hockey games.  Fuzzy would sit with his crew of diehards in the upper deck of Shea Stadium behind home plate.  One of the diehards is Mike Casiano seen above who regularly sits in Section 515 of Citi Field behind home plate.  Whenever a Met pitcher registers a strikeout he yells out at the top of his lungs "He struck him out."

I read in his Twitter feed (@KingcougarMike) that he just attended his 8,200th baseball game and his making a quest to be at 10,000 games in his lifetime.  I am certain that he attends all 81 games each year at Citi Field, but he also makes road trips to other stadiums.

I am not acquainted with Mike, but perhaps he knows by sight since he often passes by my seat in section 516.  When Mike hits 10,000 games there should be a seat in Citi Field named in his honor.
