Kevin Millwood Retiring

According to Richard Walker of the Shelby Star, 38-year-old right-hander Kevin Millwood announced Friday night at his old high school in Bessemer City, North Carolina that he is ending his baseball career.

“I’m just ready to retire,” Millwood told the Star. “I feel like I can still throw it well and going out on a high note is a big deal. I just felt it was time to be closer to home and to be around the kids more often.”
