13-Year MLB Veteran to Retire

He's about to head to Australia to play this winter and then will call it a career.  

Josh Reddick said he plans to retire after his upcoming stint in the Australian Baseball league. 
Reddick signed on with the Perth Heat earlier this year, and he will begin playing in games for them when the ABL season opens in November. 

''That'll be it for me,'' he told Mark Berman of Fox 26 in Houston on Wednesday. ''I'll ride off into the sunset once that's all over.''

The thirty-five-year-old appeared in 1,305 major league games between 2009-2021, tallying 1,157 hits and 146 home runs with an overall .262/.321/.426 career slash line. 

Reddick spent three seasons with the Boston Red Sox, five with the Oakland Athletics, one with the Los Angeles Dodgers, four with the Houston Astros and one with the Arizona Diamondbacks.
