Sean led his team to the City Championship game during his junior and senior seasons. Sean’s talents were recognized by many publications and was a member of the All-City teams of the Daily NewsNew York Post and New York Newsday. In the 1989 amateur baseball draft, Sean was drafted in the seventh round by the Seattle Mariners. In 1992, Sean was traded to the New York Yankees organization in exchange for pitcher Tim Leary. It was in the Yankee organization that he met a rising star in shortstop, Derek Jeter. Sean presently works for the Derek Jeter Foundation. Sean’s high school coach, Hall of Fame member Bob Lowenberg, calls him the “greatest hitter I ever coached”.
