Dustin Pedroia Retires After 14 Seasons

Baltimore Orioles v Boston Red Sox

BOSTON (WBZ Newsradio) — Longtime Red-Sox star Dustin Pedroia has retired.

Pedroia won three World Series Championships with the Red Sox in 2007, 2013, and 2018 and played for Boston for his entire 14-year career.

The second-baseman played more than 1,500 games for the Red Sox, but was hampered by injuries toward the end of his career. He was a four-time all-star and won Most Valuable Player in 2008.

“Dustin came to represent the kind of grit, passion, and competitive drive that resonates with baseball fans everywhere and especially with Red Sox fans,” said Red Sox owner John Henry, on Pedroia’s retirement.

Pedroia’s career was eventually ended by a knee injury.

“This was about heart. He was the whole package. I’m happy, thankful, grateful and proud that I was able to have a teammate like him,” said former teammate David Ortiz.
