This might be the coolest retirement in baseball history
Derek Jeter, eat your heart out.
Willie Bloomquist announced his retirement from baseball this week in perhaps the coolest way possible: with a home run.
Bloomquist, who hit only 18 dingers in his 14 years in the big leagues, cranked one more for the road in a video posted to Twitter.
Make your last swing your BEST swing. Farewell @MLB. Thank you for 14 amazing seasons. It's been an incredible ride. pic.twitter.com/VuImzqOrSl— Willie Bloomquist (@williebloom) March 11, 2016
"Make you last swing your BEST swing," he wrote on Twitter. "Farewell @MLB. Thank you for 14 amazing seasons. It's been an incredible ride."
Special thanks to @Mariners, @Royals, @Reds, & @Dbacks for allowing me the opportunity to live out my dream of being Big Leaguer.— Willie Bloomquist (@williebloom) March 11, 2016
Bloomquist even capped it with a bat flip. Which is kind of a surprise, considering his previous tweet.
Better watch out for the Goose, Willie.
