Hideki Matsui To Retire A Yankee

After signing with the New York Yankees in late 2002, Hideki Matsui played seven of his ten Major League Baseball seasons with the Bronx Bombers. Before retiring on December 28th, 2012, Matsui spent the 2010 season with the Los Angeles Angels, 2011 with the Oakland Athletics, and finally played 34 games for the Tampa Bay Rays.

But it's the .292/.370/.482 batting line, with 140 home runs, he hit with the Yankees that people will remember when they look back at Godzilla's career. Which is why I love the news that came from George King earlier today, in which we learned that Matsui would be signed by New York to a one-day contract, so the two-time all star could retire as a Yankee.

If you're a big fan of Hideki, then you'll probably want to circle July 28th on your calender. Because not only is that the day the team will be giving away Matsui bobbleheads, but it seems as good a time as any for all of this to go down.
