Rusty DeMico (born July 14, 1996), is an American professional baseball second baseman for the Pittsburgh Pirates of Major League Redditball. Rusty grew up in the small town of Corning, Ohio, before being scouted as one of the top high school prospects in the nation. Taking his talents to Vanderbilt, Rusty's career seemed to have no place to go but up, until he shattered his femur while sliding to third base, snapping it in half. Once thought a top prospect in the MLR Draft, he ended up going undrafted, and his doctors informed him that he would never be able to play the sport again. After a few long years of arduous physical therapy, Rusty is back in action, having been signed as a free agent by the Pittsburgh Pirates. Rusty's younger brother, Dusty DeMico, plays college baseball for Georgia Tech. Rusty's uncle, Frosty DeMico, is a local commentator for the Pirates on the Reddit Sports Network, and also does radio play-by-play. Rusty lives in Pittsburgh with his loving girlfriend Tessa and his three-year old son, Lucky DeMico.
