ARLINGTON, Texas—Ivan Rodriguez was back in Texas again. Pat Angerer Jersey . This time, the 14-time
All-Star catcher said he has played his last game. Calling it a very hard day
after a great run, Rodriguez fought back tears Monday as he announced his
retirement at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington. It came nearly 21 years after the
fan favourite known as Pudge made his major league debut as a 19-year-old with
the Rangers before later playing with five other teams. Surrounded by his wife
and their three children, including his 19-year-old son who is a prospect in the
Minnesota Twins organization, Rodriguezs eyes glistened and he spoke slowly at
first when announcing his retirement. He thanked his parents and brother who sat
in the front row for supporting him since he started playing baseball at age 5
in Puerto Rico. Rodriguez said he planned to remain in baseball in some
capacity. Ryan said the Rangers have already had some preliminary discussions
with him about what that might be. “Im always going to be in baseball the rest
of my life,” Rodriguez said. “Ill be in baseball, and Ill be active and Ill be
doing things, youll definitely see me around.” Rodriguez caught a major league
record 2,427 games, surpassing Carlton Fisks record of 2,226 during a game for
the Houston Astros three years ago at Rangers Ballpark. It was later that season
that Pudge returned briefly to the Rangers, the team he played for the first 12
of his 21 seasons. “It was interesting to have witnessed Pudges career and be
involved in it at the start and see the player that he grew to be and the impact
that he had on our organization,” said Rangers president Nolan Ryan, the Hall of
Fame pitcher who was still playing when Rodriguez made his major league debut on
June 20, 1991. Rodriguez hit .296 with 311 home runs and 1,332 RBIs in 2,543
games overall with Texas (1991-2002, 2009), Florida (2003), Detroit (2004-08),
the Yankees (2008), Houston (2009), and Washington (2010-11). His 13 Gold Gloves
were the most for a catcher. “The first time I threw to Pudge and saw him, I
really thought he was going to be a good receiver, and he had a great arm, we
all knew that,” Ryan said. “I never anticipated or expected, I dont think, for
him to have the career that he had and have the impact on the organization that
he had. It was really exciting and fun to watch.” Rodriguez, who didnt take
questions during the news conference, was part of the Rangers first three AL
West titles in a four-year span in the late 1990s. He later appeared in two
World Series, with the champion Florida Marlins in 2003 and Detroit in 2006.
Texas won its first three AL West titles in a four-year span in the late 1990s,
but didnt win a playoff series then. Rodriguez hit .332 with 35 home runs and
113 RBIs in 1999, when he was the American League MVP. The two-time defending AL
champion Rangers have no immediate plans to retire his No. 7 jersey, but have
discussed the possibility. Anthony Castonzo Jersey . Kvitova, the No. 4
seed, handled Urszula Radwanska of Poland 6-1, 6-3 in 70 minutes on Court
Lenglen. The Czech Kvitova denied Maria Sharapova a second Wimbledon crown in
last years finale at the All England Club for her first career Grand Slam title
and is trying to better her fourth-round result from last year here in Paris. Pat Angerer Elite Jersey . While the Devils
first marker was scored by Ilya Kovalchuk, there continued to be contributions
from those whose names are found much further down the marquee. http://www.nflcoltsfansstore.com/nike-reggie-wayne-Colts-jersey/
. The leagues latest move was to counter Vilmas attempt to initiate discovery in
his defamation lawsuit against Roger Goodell, which alleges the commissioner
lacked sufficient evidence when he publicly prejudged the Saints linebacker as
the ring-leader of New Orleans pay-for-injury bounty system. Pat Angerer Camo Jersey . The Toronto Raptors
first-round draft pick arrived at Air Canada Centre on Friday wearing his new
teams cap on his head and a smile on his face. Donnie Avery Jersey . Wayne had 13 catches
for a career-high 212 yards and the decisive touchdown in the Colts 30-27
come-from-behind win over the Green Bay Packers. It was his 100th consecutive
game with at least one catch. The 12-year pro earned his first career weekly
award. GUADALAJARA, Mexico—Canadas Mary Spencer won Canadas second gold medal
of the day, taking the 75-kilogram womens boxing title at the Pan American Games
on Friday. Steven Jorens and Richard Dober Jr. also reched the top of the
podium, winning the mens K2 1,000-metre race. But Canada also lost a medal when
wakeboarder Aaron Rathy tested positive for a banned substance. The 23-year-old
native of Nanaimo, B.C., was forced to return his silver medal after the
stimulant methylhexaneamine was found in his system. Rathy apologized, blaming
it on a supplement. Canada is fifth in the medal standings with 110 (26 gold, 36
silver, 49 bronze). The United States leads with 220 medals, followed by Brazil
(128), Cuba (124) and Mexico (120). Spencer, from Windsor, Ont., fought to an
15-11 victory over Yenebier Guillen of the Dominican Republic. “Its very
exciting because the Pan American Games are so prestigious,” Spencer said. “Its
such a big event, an important event.” Torontos Jorens and Dober, from
Cap-de-la-Madeleine, Que., won in three minutes 17.230 seconds, 1.928 seconds
ahead of Cubas Reinier Torres and Jorge Garcia. Argentinas Pablo De Torres and
Roberto Geringer Sallette (3:19.599) took the bronze. The victory earned Canada
a spot for Canada in the event at the 2012 London Olympics. “Its definitely an
awesome feeling to win again,” said Jorens. “Weve been looking forward to this
race since the world championships. We had a really great plan and we executed
our race plan exactly. “We are really excited, looking forward to training for
next year.” Elsewhere at the Games, Canadas Emilie Fournel won silver in the
womens K1 500-metre kayak race, while Philippe Duschesneau took bronze in the
mens K1, 1,000-metre race. Canadas womens water polo team settled for silver
after losing to the United States 27-26 in a penalty shootout. Canada won a
silver in fencing, losing to the United States in the mens team foil final.
Canada added three medals in gymnastics when Kristina Vaculik earned a silver in
womens balance beam, Mikaela Gerber won silver in womens floor exercise, and
Hugh Smith took bronze in the mens vault event. The judo team turned in three
bronze medals, with Joliane Melancon, Nick Tritton and Stefanie Tremblay each
reaching the podium. Camadian divers added to the medal haul as Edmontons Eric
Sehn and Winnipegs Kevin Geyson earned the bronze medal in the mens synchronized
10-metre platform event. Canadas Sorin Alexandru also earned a bronze in the
mens under-84 kilogram karate. In water polo, Canada led 5-2 and 7-4 before the
Americans rallied to tie the game at eight before the end of the fourth quarter.
After two scoreless overtime periods, the U.S. won the shootout 19-18. Calgarys
Emily Jean Csikos led Canada with five goals, while Krystina Alogbo of
Riviere-des-Prairies, Que., Joelle Bekhazi of Pointe-Claire, Que., and Dominique
Perreault of Montreal added one each. “We had a strong start,” said Alogbo. “We
swam stronger than them. However, it was our responsibility to not let them come
back. We showed that we have a good team with a lot of character.” The loss cost
Canada more than a gold medal. The Americans qualified directly for the London
Games, while Canada will have to survive further qualifying next April in Italy
for a shot at the Olympics. Kavell Conner Jersey. Calgarys Anthony
Prymack, Montreals Etienne Lalonde-Turbide and Nicolas Teisseire of
Boucherville, Que., won the silver medal in the mens team foil event, falling
45-35 to the Americans. Fournel, from Dorval, Que., won silver in 1:54.900, just
0.657 seconds back of Carrie Ann Johnson of the U.S. for the gold. Argentinas
Alexandra Keresztesi (1:55.765) was third. “I knew I had to be aggressive from
the beginning, but I also wanted to play a smart race and make sure Id be able
to go until the end,” said Fournel. “I knew I gave it my all, but at the end of
the day you want to pass the line first. Its great to come in second, but its
better to win.” Duschesneau, from St-Denis-de-Brompton, Que., paddled to a time
of 3:44.504, a day after picking up a silver with Dober, Jorens and Connor Taras
of Waverley, N.S., in the mens K4 1,000. “I was a bit nervous before the race
because there were two false starts, so that kinds of pumps up the anxiety for
everyone, but overall I had a good start,” Duschesneau said. “Its the first
medal Ive won internationally, so Im really happy with how it went.” Garcia took
gold with a time of 3:41.257, while Argentinas Daniel Dal Bo won silver in
3:43.038. Vaculik, from Whitby, Ont., finished the balance beam event with a
score of 13.925. Guatemalas Ana Sofia Gomez took gold with 14.175 points, while
Daniele Hypolito of Brazil (13.750) settled for bronze. “Im really happy with my
performance today,” said Vaculik. “After today Im just go back to the gym,
improve some things and get ready for London.” Gerber, from Cambridge, Ont.,
finished second in the floor exercise with a score of 13.775 behind Ana Lago of
Mexico (13.800). Brazils Hypolito won her second bronze 13.750 points. Competing
last in the floor final, Gerbers result dropped Vaculik from third to fourth.
“You never like to kick your own teammate out of a medal but I just went out and
competed and let things turn out the way they did,” said Gerber. “I like
competing last. You know how the other gymnasts have done and its fun.” In the
mens vault, Smith, from Sackville, N.S., scored 15.575 to finish behind
first-place Diego Hypolito of Brazil (15.875) and Chiles Enrique Tomas Gonzalez
(15.587). “Ive been training for this day for so long and it turned out
fantastic,” said Smith, whose mother is Mexican and was cheered on by family and
friends in the stands. “I did OK in the all around the other day but vault is
the event where I was really going for a medal,” he said. “I knew I needed to
hit both vaults clean and land on my feet and I did.” In karate, Alexandru, from
Lachine, Que., won bronze after losing 3-0 in a semifinal to Venezuelas Cesar
Herrera. “This is one of the best results of my career, and it feels amazing,”
said Alexandru. “I am really happy to have won a medal for Canada.” In judo,
Melancon, from Blainville, Que., won bronze in the womens under-57 kilogram
division, while Tremblay, from Chicoutimi, Que., earned a bronze the womens
under-63 kilogram competition. Tritton, from Guelph, Ont., made it three bronze
medals with a podium finish in the mens under-73 kilogram division. ’ ’ ’
