MLB outfielder Cameron Maybin announced his retirement from baseball on Monday night.

“I’ve played this game since I was four years old. Three decades later, my love for baseball is only matched by the love I have for the family that’s supported my every step of the way,” he posted on social media.

“I am the man I am today because of this game and the teams that gave a young kid from Asheville, North Carolina a chance to be great: the Tigers, Marlins, Padres, Braves, Angels, Astros, Mariners, Yankees, Cubs, and Mets. To the coaches, agents, mentors and most importantly, the fans, from the bottom of my heart, I thank you for your support."

Maybin spent time in the Cubs organization and most recently played with the Mets.

He finished his 15-year career with a .254 average and 187 stolen bases.

Best of luck to Maybin on his retirement and he is certainly was one of the good guys in the sport.
