Recommended Posts

TAMPA, United States (AFP) - New York Yankees southpaw pitcher Al Leiter, a veteran of 20 Major League Baseball seasons, announced his retirement after a 2-0 exhibition victory over Cleveland.


Leiter, 40, was a member of two World Series champions who posted a career record of 162-132 with a 3.80 earned-run average in 419 appearances, 382 starts, with the Yankees, Toronto Blue Jays, Florida Marlins and New York Mets.


Leiter, who retired one batter in his farewell appearance, was obtained in a mid-season 2005 deal with Florida. He went 4-5 with a 5.49 earned-run average in 16 appearances with the Yankees last season.
