Rod Carew

On this date in 1986, Rod Carew announces his retirement from baseball.

"Carew was a damn fool to sign that contract. He only gets $170,000 and we all know damn well that he's worth more than that. But that's what his agent asked for, so that's what he gets." - Twins owner Calvin Griffith (1978)
