Five-time All-Star Tulowitzki announced his retirement from Major League on Thursday. In the offseason, he signed with Yankees hoping he could get off the injuries that have cost him one year of his career.
Tulowitzki, who is 34 years, said he had longed for that moment to announce his retirement. He has been in the injury list since the start of the season. He suffered a calf strain after playing five games.
He also said that it was his dream to play at the highest level as a Major League Baseball Player. To him, it has been a great honor to live to his goal.
“I will always look back with tremendous gratitude for having the privilege of playing as long as I did. There is no way to truly express my appreciation for the fans of Colorado, Toronto, and New York. They always made my family, and I feel so welcome.
“I want to thank the Yankees organization and Brian Cashman for allowing me to wear the Yankees uniform and live out another childhood dream. I wish that my health had allowed for a different ending to that chapter. “
He ended his statement by saying goodbye to Major League Baseball.
