Anthony Causi Career
His action shots reflected his ability to be in the right place at the right time: his capture of legendary Yankees pitcher Mariano Rivera from behind, exiting the bullpen and entering Yankee Stadium, became his most popular photo, and his portraits of some of those same athletes off the field showed the vast amount of relationships he developed. In 2017, the mercurial Mets All-Star Yoenis Céspedes gave The Post access to his ranch in Vero Beach, Florida, and dressed in cowboy clothing, due to his trust in Causi.
A Brooklyn native who grew up in the borough’s Bensonhurst neighborhood, Causi joined The Post in 1994 as a photo messenger, graduated to photo editor and eventually became a full-time journalist photographer, which he called the attaining of a dream. In that role, he chronicled the highs and lows of the Yankees, Mets, Giants, Jets, Knicks, Rangers and more for The Post.
“Anthony Causi was our colleague, our friend, and a brilliant journalist,” Stephen Lynch, The Post’s Editor-in-Chief, said. “He was, quite simply, one of the best sports photographers in New York City, capturing all the major moments of the past 25 years. Soft-spoken, funny, but most of all kind — he was respected by those he photographed and admired by those with whom he worked.
“The Post that you read, and the newsroom that we work in, are less colorful today because of his absence. Our hearts go out to his family, and we share their grief.”
“Anthony was a great, funny and awesome guy to talk to and learn from about sports photography,” Phillies shortstop Didi Gregorius, who got to know Causi while with the Yankees, tweeted.
