15-Year Veteran Announces Retirement

Longtime MLB pitcher J.A. Happ has officially announced his retirement from professional baseball.

Happ headed into the 2022 season without a home and was considering his playing future. Now, the 39-year-old is officially ready to move on to the next chapter of his life and officially call it quits. 

Happ put together a very long and solid career. In 354 career games between the Phillies, Astros, Blue Jays, Mariners, Pirates, Yankees, Twins, and Cardinals, he had a 133-100 record and 4.13 ERA. With that, he had a 20-win season in 2016, appeared in one All-Star Game, and won the World Series in 2008. 

Enjoy your retirement, Mr. Happ!
