Former Red Sox Fan-Favorite Infielder Officially Announces Retirement

The Mayor of Ding Dong City is officially calling it a career.

Former Boston Red Sox infielder Travis Shaw took to Twitter to officially announce his retirement Monday night.

“For the last eight years, I’ve been blessed to live out my childhood dreams of playing Major League Baseball,” Shaw said. “But today, that dream comes to an end! 12 years ago, being a 9th-round pick, I would have never imagined what this game provided me. The memories will last a lifetime. To everyone that made an impact on my career ( the list is endlessly long), I will be forever indebted to you! As this chapter closes, the only two words that come to mind is thank you!!”
