RODRIGUEZ RETIRES, YANKS WIN

With tears in his eyes, Alex Rodriquez announced his retirement from baseball at Yankee Stadium today.

“This is a tough day. I love this game. And I love this team. And today, I am saying goodbye to both. This is also a proud day. I was 18 when I broke into the big leagues … I never thought I could play for 22 years. At 18, I just wanted to make a team.”
