Outfielder Denard Span has decided to retire from Major League Baseball after 11 seasons in the big leagues.
The 36-year-old says he is walking away from the game because of his principles not due to lack of talent or desire to play.
Span mentioned that he would have preferred to walk away from the game on his own terms. However, Span didn't receive any offers to his liking and decided it was time to hang up his cleats.
