Articles > Report: Shawn Green Retires after 15 Seasons

New York, NY (Sports Network) - Outfielder Shawn Green, a 15-year major league veteran most recently with the New York Mets, has reportedly announced his retirement.

Green, who spent the past season and a half with the Mets, told the New York Post he had planned on retiring once his contract was up. In 2007, the 35-year old hit .291 with 10 home runs and 46 RBI in 130 games, starting 107 games in New York's outfield.

The left-handed Green was a career .283 hitter, totaling 328 home runs and driving in 1,070 runs in stints with the Blue Jays, Dodgers, Diamondbacks and Mets. Four times in his career he clubbed more than 30 homers, including the 1999 seasons with Toronto, when he hit .309, smacked 42 home runs and drove in 123 runs.
