Red Sox fans probably saw it coming, but now it’s actually happening: long-time 2B Dustin Pedroia has just announced his retirement from baseball.

 

New England seamheads know the numbers, but they’re worth revisiting: 17 seasons in the Red Sox organization, 2 World Series rings, 2007 Rookie of the Year, 2008 MVP, and a handful of Silver Sluggers, Golden Gloves, and All-Star selections. Aside from David Ortiz, it’s hard to think of another player that embodies the Red Sox of the last decade-and-a-half than the Laser Show.

 

Pedey leaves the game with lifetime slash line of .299/.365/.439, with 140 home runs and 725 RBIs in 1,512 games. Revisit some of his greatest moments below.
