Casey "Mighty Mite" Candaele

Casey Candaele grew up in a baseball family; however, what sets him apart from the occasional father, brother, uncle, grandfather combination is that Casey is the only major league player whose mother played pro ball. Then again "naked batting practice" probably sets him apart from a lot of other players, too.

He began with the Expos in 1986 (after spending a few seasons in their minor league division) and played there until coming to Houston in '88 when he was traded on July 23, in exchange for catcher Mark Bailey.

Candaele left Houston in 1993 and spent some more time in the minors, played some for the Indians, then back to the minors.
