Michael Young retires from MLB after 14 seasons

Michael Young

Michael Young has called it quits on his MLB career. According to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports, the  14-year veteran has chosen to retire from baseball, despite having three “good” offers, one including from the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Young spent 13 years  with the Texas Rangers before moving on to the Dodgers and then the Phillies last season. Young will finish with 185 career homeruns, 1030 RBIs, and an OBP of .346. He was also known as one of the best leaders on his teams, a great chemistry guy for the clubhouse, and one of the nicest men in baseball.

Hard to argue with a man who’s been around the league for that long, who has now chosen family over baseball.
