COMMENTS AND REACTIONS
Anthony Causi was one of the first people I met in the New York media when I moved from California. The first day of spring training he jokingly told me if anyone gave me problems I should let him know because Italians take care of their own in New York.

The group that covers baseball at The Post has been blessed to be together for a long time. All the big events together under pressure bond you, and the acts of kindness make you family. Anthony Causi was kind.
1. The first time I met Anthony Causi was when I was my freshman year. I was shooting a St. John’s men’s basketball game and was shooting on the cameras “sports mode” because I had just started shootings and had no idea what I was doing.
At the end of last baseball season I learned Anthony Causi had moved into my town. We were planning at some point to get together for drinks or to shoot pool or something. We never got around to it. So sorry that now we never will. RIP Ant

His talent was only surpassed by his heart, his passion and his attention to detail. I will miss his kindness and sense of humor. We will all miss him. RIP Anthony Causi.
Usually when you call somebody one-of-a-kind, it’s just hyperbole. But in the case of Anthony Causi, it was real. He had this warm, welcoming personality. And it wasn’t fake, or an act; he was just a caring guy. He left us far too soon. Thoughts & prayers go out to his family.
RIP Anthony, whether you’re a photographer, or sports fan, you’ve seen this guys pictures. He was absolute legend in his domain. #AnthonyCausi
I never had the privilege to have a conversation with Anthony Causi. But I’d be remiss if I didn’t take the time to pay tribute to the great work and impact he left across the New York sports scene. Thank you. RIP.

When I first launched MMO and didn’t know any better, I used one of Anthony Causi’s photos without citing him or his permission. He could’ve hammered me but instead he told me about proper protocol and was as nice as he could be about it. From that day forward…

Gas lighting and abuse of truth. A few more VIP’s died from “covid19”, Hal Wilmer 64, Brooke Taylor 79, Ellis Marsalis 85, Anthony Causi 48. and Stanley Chera late 70’s. Now we are supposed to believe there is only one cause of death.
Wanted to offer my condolences to the family of Anthony Causi. I remember him taking photos each year
and even helping us with our filming of on-cameras back in NJ. R.I.P

Anthony Causi! I did not know you well but when I walked past you you always smiled at me and I always smiled back! I will miss seeing you at the stadium!! RIP and my prayers go out to your girls!
wow, utterly saddened by the news Anthony Causi passed away. When I worked with MLB at Yankee Stadium he was one of the only people to be real with me and give me honest advice and critique. Thank you for your wisdom and the memories you have captured for millions. RIP Anthony
Anthony Causi shot a ton of portraits of the area’s top local HS and college athletes we profiled. Frequently parents or players asked for the original pictures and would offer him money for them. He would have none of that. Was so generous and kind.

I’ve read about a hundred times people posting RIP comments fir sports photographer Anthony Causi. I don’t mean to be shallow, however, most people who wrote these mini obituaries don’t even know who he was. I sure as hell never heard of him, but may he RIP nonetheless
I kind of got to know Anthony Causi throughout the years & he even shot action pictures of me at Football & baseball games & we would say hello to each other as he had a funny , but caring persona about him and I will definitely miss him and him not being there will not be right
Spent day working on expense accounts before terrible news of #AnthonyCausi death. Have a lot of data entry ahead. When I finish early Monday, will check on more Anthony tweets to update folks. Small consolation, but #RIPAnthony is No. 1 trend on twitter. Well-deserved.

The Mets’s main photographer on the new york post passed away. You captured some of the moments in the last few years that I have been fortunate to see in post-games, thank you for that. Rip Anthony Causi
To find out that my family friend and photographer, Anthony Causi has died from Covid through a trending hashtag is the worst possible feeling. I regret not going to shoot the Mermaid Parade with him awhile back, and I pray for his kids and the rest of his family Red heart
Anthony Causi was a kind man and brilliant photographer. One night at work as a broadcast PA, late into a Yankee game, I was standing next to Anthony in the camera well. He says, “You wanna try?” and hands me his camera and instructs me on how and when to take the picture.
