10-Year Veteran Pitcher Announces Retirement

Calling it a career.

Veteran pitcher Josh Lindblom has announced his retirement.

Lindblom broke the news himself via his personal Twitter page with a pretty inspiring message.

The thirty-five-year-old pitched for the Los Angeles Dodgers, Philadelphia Phillies, Texas Rangers, Oakland Athletics, Pittsburgh Pirates and the Milwaukee Brewers over his seven-year career. He also spent some time pitching in the Korea Baseball Organization.

Lindblom leaves behind a 4.78 ERA, 1.40 WHIP, and 200 strikeouts over 209 career innings in the majors.

He was a former second-round pick by the Dodgers in the 2008 MLB Draft.

"Finishing well is about living each day with the end in mind. It's about making the most out of whatever moments you have until the end-whenever it might-arrives."

Well said, Josh Lindblom. Happy retirement.
