Cubs’ World Series champ Dexter Fowler retires

“It’s here. I’m hanging up my cleats,” Fowler wrote. “From an 18-year-old draft pick in Colorado to a “vet” in Anaheim—there are a few things I will never forget ... Getting THAT call to the big leagues in September 2008. Wow. My world was spinning. My first ‘you’ve been traded to Houston’ heart pounding call.

“The feeling of bliss while hearing the words ‘All-Star’. Never knew what it felt like t be that guy! Forever grateful. Soaking wet and freezing on the field with tears in my eyes after winning the World Series in Chicago. The comfort of calling St Louis home and being a Red Bird. Today is one of those moments metaphorically step down from your throne with a standing ovation, tip of the cap, and the world stops spinning. I’m mostly proud to lok back at my career knowing that I played the game the right way and did my best to make a positive impact beyond the win.

“Denver, Houston, Chicago, St Louis and Anaheim ... My family, friends, teammates, and staff. Than you for 14 years. I gave you me all.
