The coronavirus has taken another fatal victim – Anthony Causi – a New York Post photographer who had taken many iconic shots of sports events for more than 30 years. He is well-known for his 2006 iconic shot of Mariano Rivera making his way out of the bullpen. Causi also went to the Meadowlands and Madison Square Garden frequently and hence, had taken amazing shots of Yoenis Cespedes of the Mets at the outfielder’s ranch.
Stephen Lynch – the Editor-In-Chief of New York Post said: “Anthony Causi was our colleague, our friend and a brilliant journalist.”
Many photographs and sports personalities have mentioned how Causi worked in a professional manner. They were all saddened by this death.
Even Bruce Beck from NBC New York paid his tribute: “The @nypost photographer was one of the best on the planet. He was a New York Treasure; a generous man who loved his family, friends & his craft. My heart is broken. RIP Anthony J. Causi”
For the past 3 weeks, Causi battled the coronavirus. A camera captured him during his moments of intense battle.
On Instagram, Causi had posted: “I never thought I would get something like this. I thought I was indestructible. If I do make it out of here. I promise you this the worlds not going to know what hit it.”
Causi was just 48. He is survived by Romina, his wife and Mia, and John, his children.
