Curtis Granderson, who played with the Yankees from 2010 to 2013 during his 16-year career, has announced his retirement from Major League Baseball.
I've been blessed to play professional baseball for the greater part of two decades," Granderson wrote. "As I reflect on my career, I realize that not much has changed since those early days in Little League. My parents and family are still my greatest fans, and they impart the same message today that they did back then: give back, never forget to enjoy the ride, and don't think; have fun.
I'm eternally grateful to every team and every city I've had the opportunity to call "home": Detroit, New York (both the Bronx and Queens), Los Angeles, Toronto, Milwaukee, Miami, and of course, my hometown of Chicago. It is these communities that allowed me to take my Grand Kids Foundation to new heights and use my platform for positive change.
