Veteran outfielder Cameron Maybin is retiring from MLB after 15 seasons, he announced on social media Monday.
Maybin, 34, has played for 11 different teams in his career. He won a World Series with the Houston Astros in 2017 after being acquired off waivers one month before the postseason.
In Game 2 of the 2017 World Series, Maybin singled and stole second as a pinch hitter in the 11th inning before scoring on a go-ahead home run from George Springer that helped seal the win.
"Although my journey as a professional baseball player ends here with the announcement of my retirement, my work in this game is just getting started," Maybin said in a statement. "I'm excited for what lies ahead, including my work with the Players Alliance in our effort to provide access and opportunity for the next generation of Black ballplayers."
