The outpouring of tributes to Anthony Causi continued Monday night, as the Mets honored the late Post sports photographer with a moment of silence on social media.
Causi, 48, died Sunday at North Shore University Hospital following a month-long battle with the coronavirus.
“Ladies and gentlemen, the Mets community and the sports world at large lost one of the all-time great photographers and friends in Anthony Causi,” said Collin Cosell, one of the Citi Field PA announcers, in a Twitter video. “Many of us had the honor of getting to know and work with Anthony, but all of us had the privilege of seeing his work throughout his spectacular career. And since we are unable to give a timely tribute at the ballpark (due to the season being delayed), we ask you now to please join us for a virtual moment of silence in his honor.
“Thank you all, and thank you, Anthony Causi.”
Members of the Mets and many others in the sports world — including Derek Jeter and Conor McGregor among others — paid their respects to Causi. His charm, larger-than-life personality and ability to capture iconic moments made him one of the New York sports media’s most lovable figures during a career at The Post that spanned nearly three decades.
Causi is survived by his wife, Romina, and their children John, 5, and Mia, 2, as well as his parents, Lucille and John Causi, and sisters Maria Marangelli and Dianna Marotto.
