David Freese, who will forever be known for his heroics that helped the St. Louis Cardinals win the 2011 World Series, announced his retirement on Saturday.
“Will never stop thinking about the days I got to be around such wonderful people playing this game,” Freese wrote in a statement on Twitter. “As I move forward with the next phase of my life, I am forever grateful to all of you and the game of baseball.”
In his postseason career, Freese played 69 games and hit .299/.370/.549 with 10 home runs in 230 plate appearances. In 1184 regular season games and 4229 plate appearances, Freese hit .277/.351/.423 with 113 home runs.
Freese played only 98 regular season games with the Dodgers but he was very productive, hitting .328/.421/.607 with 13 home runs in 233 plate appearances.
