Pudge Rodriguez Hangs It Up

One of the most decorated catchers in history, and former beloved Texas Ranger, Ivan “Pudge” Rodriguez will announce his retirement after 21 years in Major League Baseball on Monday.

Pudge came up to the Majors with the Rangers back in 1991 at 19, and on Monday he will be back with Texas to announce the end of his career.

Rodriguez won 13 Gold Gloves, was a 14-time All-star, and caught more games (2,427) than any other player in MLB history. He had a .296 career batting average and 311 home runs.

Pudge played in 1,500 games with the Texas Rangers, and ranks second in club history in hits (1,747), double (352), and multihit games (490). He won the 1999 American League Most Valuable Player award with the Rangers, and is expected to announce his retirement from the club at 2:00pm Monday from the Texas Rangers Baseball Hall Of Fame.
