Brian Roberts Retires From MLB

"If you ruin my farewell tour I swear to Jesus...."

Former Baltimore Orioles and New York Yankees second baseman Brian Roberts announced his retirement from Major League Baseball on Saturday. I spent the weekend with the family and I am just now getting to the news so sorry if it's a little late, and if you missed it then you're welcome. Roberts played parts of 14 seasons in the majors and will hang up his spikes at age 37.

Roberts got a total of 348 plate appearances with the Yankees this season after spending his entire career with the Orioles and slashed .237/.300/.360 with five home runs and seven RBI. When New York acquired Stephen Drew to play second base Roberts was designated for assignment and released to make room on the roster.
