Legends On Deck

Players Who Called It A Career In 2014

In 2014, we witnessed a season where a Legend and some of the most notable ball players called it a career. Looking back at the names on the list below, it pains me to see some of the players that I grew up watching and now knowing I won’t get that privilege again.

This season saw some great baseball, and there is no doubt in my mind that in the coming years we will see some amazing more, especially with the young crop of talent entering the game. But as I look back at the players that are walking away from our National Pastime,  I have to tip my cap and thank them for the great memories.
