Michael Young to Retire as a Ranger

Popular former Texas Ranger Michael Young will officially announce his retirement from baseball Friday in Arlington, the team announced Thursday night.

After a 13 year career, 12 of which was spent in a Ranger uniform, he will retire as a Ranger in a press conference at Rangers Ballpark.

The team released this statement Thursday night:

"The Texas Rangers want to congratulate Michael Young on his outstanding major league career. For 12 seasons in a Rangers uniform, he was a standout performer on the field and the consummate role model in the community.
 

Michael is a leader, and he demonstrated those skills every day of the season, year in and year out. We are proud to say that Michael Young is this franchise's all-time leader in games, at bats, runs, hits, doubles, triples, and total bases. He excelled at multiple positions and came through in the clutch.
When Texas advanced to postseason play in 2010 after an 11-year drought, teammates and fans everywhere were especially happy that Michael had reached the playoffs. And he was an integral performer in those Rangers' back-to-back World Series runs.

The Rangers wish Michael, his wife Cristina, and sons Mateo, Emilio, and Antonio the very best as they enter a new chapter in their lives. And we want them to know there will always be a place for the Young's in the Texas Rangers family."
