Kevin Levine-Flandrup: Do you play any other sports besides baseball?
Casey Mulholland: I used to play golf, and I played basketball, but baseball has always been my love and passion. I was actually pretty good at golf, and the golf coach said I would have to decide between golf and baseball because the swings don't mix, so I said I appreciated all his time, but baseball was definitely my first love.
Kevin Levine-Flandrup: What do you shoot?
Casey Mulholland: I can be a mid to low 80s guy if I go out and practice a lot, but I don't get out there often so I'm usually around the mid to low 90s which isn't very good [laughs>. I just enjoy playing as a way to get away now.
Kevin Levine-Flandrup: You go to IMG Academy, the same high school that the Yankees 2009 2nd round pick, JR Murphy attended. What can you tell me about playing with JR?
Casey Mulholland: JR was an amazing catcher with an amazing knowledge of the game, and he helped me out a lot last year. He conducts himself in a really professional manner, and I just enjoyed being his teammate. Numerous time last year when we were in big games and big situations it was great to have that guy behind the plate that you could have a lot of confidence in. He was just an all-around great teammate to me, I mean he taught me so many things, he knew the right thing to say at the right time, he was always that guy that you could look upon when you needed something big - he came through in the clutch for us so many times last year.
