After 16 great MLB season, I officially announce my retirement from baseball.
As a boy growing up in the Dominican Republic, I would never have dreamed to achieve all that I have been through this incredible game. I want to thank God for all the blessings.
No man can succeed alone and with this in mind, I have a lot that I would like to thank starting with my mom and dad. They were there for me, despite all the UPS and downs, good and bad, and I always will consider myself blessed, for their support and love.
I want to thank the new York Mets for giving me the opportunity to become a professional baseball player and that brought me back to the end of my playing career. I also wish to thank Miami Marlins and Toronto Blue Jays organizations, like all my partners for many years.
Fans of the Mets, what can I say? We never got the ring, we hoped, we wanted to do, but I can’t imagine playing in front of better fans all over the world. Your passion and energy always lifted me higher, and for that I will always be grateful. I want to thank the fans in Miami and Toronto, and all my fans around the world.
I would like to point out my agents Peter and ed Greenberg and my buddy Chris Leible for all they have done for me over the last two decades. I also want to thank all my friends, old and new, you know who you are.
And last but most important, I want to thank my wife Catherine and My lovely daughter. Catherine thank you for always beside me.
