Rich Aurilia hangs up his cleats after 15 years
Rich Aurilia officially announced his retirement from baseball Sunday, according to MLB.com’s Chris Haft, and may go to work for the Giants in some kind of broadcasting capacity.
Aurilia, 38, posted a .275/.328/.433 batting line over 15 professional seasons, making stops in San Francisco, Seattle, San Diego and Cincinnati. In fact, he was in San Fran when he made the announcement this weekend.
Aurilia hit .213/.256/.279 in 133 plate appearances for the Giants last season while earning a cool $1 million salary. He was an All-Star just once -- back in 2001.
