Nice Little Gift

While in Seattle, Sean Casey of the Boston Red Sox got to catch up with Eddie Vedder, on Wednesday. Casey brought home with him quite the prize: a personalized Fender Telecaster that Vedder used in a recording.

“I can’t play guitar, I don’t think he knows that, but I’m going to learn now. I’ve always wanted to and this is going to be the incentive,” said Casey, a longtime Pearl Jam fan.

He said Vedder once paid a visit to Cincinnati when Casey played for the Reds and played a song in the clubhouse. Casey gave him a bat then. What goes around, comes around: On the back of the guitar, Vedder inscribed, “Love to you Sean, Eddie Vedder.”
