Stepping off the mound and leaving my cleats


As many of you know by now I have hung up my cleats. This has been one of the hardest decisions of my life, but I am very proud of what I have accomplished and I have no regrets.

I first let my immediate family and agent know about my decision, and then of course I announced it to the social media world. I really want to thank my family, teammates, friends, coaches, and of course fans for all of your support throughout my career. You all have had a special meaning in my heart and have helped me play this wonderful game with respect and admiration.

This game has allowed me to travel to all over the world and meet wonderful people and witness different languages, cultures, and food. The pictures and memories I have will last a lifetime. I have had so many fond memories on and off the field.

I went farther in this game than I could have ever imagined. When I played in high school I would have never envisioned playing in college or even further than that. All my teammates throughout the years have a special meaning to me. I have learned so much from them. We had some of the best moments all over the world. We have laughed, cried, and celebrated championships in beer and cheap champagne soaked locker rooms. I wish nothing but the best to you all and please continue playing this great game as long as you can.

My travels has also allowed me to interact with fans, local communities, and give back to wonderful charities. I am very appreciative of the connections and friends I have made through those outlets. I always knew there was a bigger picture than the actual game being played. I always tried to give back and make people smile at community events or at the ballpark before a game.

I am working out the details of my next business venture which will be within the sporting world and I plan to continue to blog and tweet. Please feel free to leave any comments and questions.

Great job on what you did, Scot – many of us would love to be drafted let alone reach Triple A. Greatly appreciate all the blogging you have done and looking forward to many more posts from you. Gave this a salute over on the community blog.
