David Freese, 2011 World Series MVP with Cardinals, retires after 11 seasons

David Freese, the 2011 World Series MVP with the St. Louis Cardinals, has retired after 11 major league seasons.

Freese, 36, announced his retirement in a tweet Saturday, saying he will “never stop thinking about the days I got to be around such wonderful people playing the game.”

Freese spent the past two seasons with the Los Angeles Dodgers and also played for the Los Angeles Angels and Pittsburgh Pirates, but he will be best known for his postseason heroics in St. Louis, where he started his major league career in 2009 and played five seasons.

He was a career .277 hitter and even better in the postseason, with a .299 average.

Oddly figures, given how much we’ve been throwing his name around in the last week or so.
