Fun Facts

Santiago’s first gloves were homemade. They were thick cardboard into which he cut three holes for his ring, middle and index fingers. He received his first real glove in a community giveaway by late Giants shortstop Jose Uribe.

From the same Dominican town as former Giants infielder Juan Uribe, who reached the pros three years before Santiago. Santiago remembers going to Uribe’s house as a child and asking him for baseball socks.

Pitched under the name Jairo Garcia from 2000-2005. In 2006 he revealed his real name is Santiago Casilla and his true age.
