Curtis Granderson announces retirement


It’s not often that a guy can go from the Bronx to Queens and still become a beloved member of the orange and blue, but that was certainly the case for Curtis Granderson, who announced his retirement on Twitter on Friday.

In parts of four seasons with the Mets, Granderson clubbed 95 homers and drove in 247 runs to go along with a stellar .341 OBP. As good of a player as he was, it’s the man off the field that truly left his impression in Flushing.

Curtis Granderson is one of the all-time good guys, always going the extra mile to do what he can to help the community. When I think of him, guys like Adam Graves and Al Leiter come to mind, and in times of volunteering and service, that’s some elite company.

With that, we’d like to thank the Grandy Man for the memories and wish him all the best in life’s next chapter.
