Default David Wright to retire

Per MLB.com ó David Wright will start at third base for the Mets on Sept. 29 and will then likely not play baseball again. For insurance reasons, neither side used the phrase retire. Wright hasnít played in the big leagues since 2016 but he was a great third baseman for awhile and bounced back after dealing with concussions. What a great career.

Iím not sure if anyone caught his press conference but I heard in on MLB Network Radio. It really puts into perspective his love of the game and how he devoted his entire life to it, yet Father Time and a really bad run of injuries ended his career.

I always liked him. He played the game the right way and did all he could to try to get back to the top level. His body betrayed him.

Default David Wright's First All Star AB

I liked this guy a lot. Good player and a great guy. One of my fondest memories of him are when he made his first All Star team in 2006 and went deep on his first All Star AB, and on the first pitch no less!

Can any of WSI's resident attorneys explain to me how this is not insurance fraud?

Saying ďIím not retiringĒ is not the same as evidencing an intent to retire while leaving open the option to file a claim on your insurance policy.

Saw this on QuickPitch this morning- very poignant- seems like a great guy.
