Vladimir Guerrero announced his retirement from baseball last September, but we learned today that he’s going to officially go out as a member of the Angels after he throws out the first pitch tonight:

Of course, this ultimately doesn’t mean much. Still, it feels a little weird, as Guerrero spent more time with the Expos and put up slightly bigger numbers there.
