Pat The Bat Retires **UPDATE**

Thanks for the memories!

Pat Burrell has decided to call it a career. He’s been plagued by a chronic foot injury for years. Burrell played in 12 seasons for the Phillies, Rays, and Giants winning World Series rings with the Phillies (2008) and the Giants (2010). He finished his career eight home runs shy of 300 and 24 RBIs from 1000. While Burrell isn’t a sure fire Hall of Famer, he has a very good chance to make the Phillies Wall of Fame. Burrell finished his Phillies career on top winning a World Series, leading the parade with Elvis (his dog), and compiling a .257/.367/.485 career line with 251 home runs and 827 runs batted in.  On behalf of all of at TSP, thanks for the memories and good luck in all of your future endeavors.

**UPDATE** Pat Burrell will leave his baseball career the same way he entered it, as a Philadelphia Phillie. Burrell is set to sign a one day contract, so that he can retire a member of the organization that drafted, developed, and made him a star. The Phillies are also preparing a special event on May 19th for Burrell. Pride of the Phillies print for all fans in attendance? Who knows.
