Hudson - Final Start

Tim Hudson started his career with the Oakland A’s back in 1999, and for nearly two decades, the right hander has experienced success on the mound.

On Thursday, the four-time all star started his last game of his career, which was number 482, and after 2.1 innings, manager Bruce Bochy made his way to the mound to give Hudson a moment that will last a lifetime. The one-time 20 game winner walked off the mound to a standing ovation from the Giants home crowd and also received congrats from teammates and the opposing team, the Dodgers.

Hudson finished his career with 222 career wins, a 3.49 ERA, 26 complete games, 13 shutouts, 2080 strike outs in 3126 innings.

In 2014, Hudson became a World Champion for the first time in his career when the Giants beat the Kansas City Royals to win their 8th World Championship.

Truly a remarkable career for a man that had only three losing seasons in his 17 years in the majors.

Thank you for the memories Tim, you were one of the best on the mound.

Watch Hudson take his final walk off an MLB mound.
