Retirements Newsbeat

2-time World Series champion Shane Victorino officially announces retirement from MLB

“I think it’s time to hang it up and call it a career. I’ve been blessed with that opportunity as a baseball player, as a little boy growing up in Maui, getting an opportunity to represent my state, represent my people, so it’s about that time,” he said. “It’s time for me to say, it’s time for me to move on, time for me to enjoy retirement. Officially, Aug. 3 will be the date. I’ll go back to Philly and probably sign a one-day deal, and hang it up and call it a career.”

His announcement puts a close to the most prolific and decorated career in Hawaii baseball history.
