Biography

At age 5, his family moved from the Bronx to Mount Vernon, New York. At age 11, his parents divorced and he moved with his father to California. He attended Lakewood High School in Lakewood, CA, where he was a member of the CIF champions in 1987. He attended Long Beach City College before being drafted by the California Angels in the 30th round of the 1988 amateur draft. Easley's wife's name is Dawn and they have four children: Rocky, Jasmine, Nathaniel, and Jayce Derrick.

Baseball career

Easley has played for the California Angels, Detroit Tigers, Tampa Bay Devil Rays, Florida Marlins, Arizona Diamondbacks, and the New York Mets.

While with the Tigers, Easley was a 1998 American League All-Star. That year, he batted .271 and set career-highs with 27 home runs and 100 RBI. He also participated in the 1998 Home Run Derby. In 2001, Easley became the ninth Detroit Tiger to hit for the cycle. In 2001, Easley also had a five-hit game and an inside-the-park home run.

On November 16, 2006, Easley signed with the Mets as a free agent.

On August 2, 2007, Easley became the 24th player in Mets' history to hit an inside the park home run (against the Milwaukee Brewers), during a 12-4 victory [1].

On August 18, 2007, Easley suffered a high ankle sprain while advancing to second base on a wild pitch. This injury ended his 2007 baseball season, but he resumed play with the Mets in 2008.

At the end of the 2008 regular season, Easley held the record among active players as the one who had played the most games without reaching the postseason (1,706 games).
