Congrats to tim wakefield on his retirement. Amazing that his "second career" in boston lasted 17 years— Jon Heyman (@JonHeymanCBS) February 17, 2012
Wakefield, of course, pitched for the Pirates in 1992 and 1993. Amazingly, he didn't even make his debut until he was 25. He pitched two complete games for the Pirates in the 1992 NLCS. UPDATE: It just occurred to me that Wakefield was the last active player who was on a winning team with the Pirates. UPDATE: Actually, Al from Bleed Cubbie Blue pointed out on Twitter that Miguel Batista, who pitched two innings for the Bucs in '92, is still out there. He's in camp with the Mets. It's not clear whether he'll play this year. I'd honestly forgotten about Batista's incredibly-brief tenure with the Pirates.
