Todd Helton Retires

Todd Helton, first baseman for the past 17 years for the Colorado Rockies, will play his last major league baseball game this afternoon in Los Angeles. He has been a hero of mine ever since I was a kid, when my mom and I would go to a Rockies game every Wednesday night. It’s weird; he’s the first of my childhood heroes to stop doing what he does, and I’m happy for him. But it’s still an odd experience.

Congratulations, Todd. You’ve had a hell of a career.
