Former Yankee Curtis Granderson Announces Retirement After 16 Seasons:

Early yesterday morning, former Yankee Curtis Granderson took to Twitter to formally announce his retirement from baseball, after a very successful 16-year career.

Granderson wore 7 different uniforms during his time in the big leagues, most notably with the Detroit Tigers (2004-2009), the New York Yankees (2010-2013), and the New York Mets (2014-2017), alongside spending some time with the Dodgers, Blue Jays, Brewers, and Marlins.

Granderson was a 3-Time All-Star (2009, 2011, 2012) and won 1 Silver Slugger at Center Field (2011) in a season where he was voted 4th in the AL MVP voting. He was also a 4-Time Marvin Miller Man of the Year Award winner (2009, 2016, 2018, 2019), and a 1-time Roberto Clemente Award winner (2016).

We wish Curtis Granderson all the best in retirement! He was a true ambassador for the game of baseball.

How was Granderson as a Yankee?

In his 4-Year stint with the New York Yankees from 2010-2013, Granderson was a fantastic ballplayer as he manned Center Field for over 4,000 innings of work. During that time he only made 3 errors in Center Field, with a nearly perfect fielding percentage that hovers around 0.995.

While donning the Yankee pinstripes and away grays, Granderson hit to a triple-slash of .245/.335/.495 (.829 OPS) with a 120 OPS+ alongside 115 HR’s, 307 RBI’s, and a K:BB rate of 549:240 (2.28:1), all over 513 games. This came out to be 15 bWAR (or about 3.8 per full season)- perfectly in line with All-Star level play.

Many Yankees fans will remember his back-to-back 40+ Home Run seasons in 2011 (41) and 2012 (43), including John Sterling’s infamous “The Grandy Man Can/He’s something sort of Grandish” home run call that was echoed many times into the night.

Have a Happy Retirement, Curtis Granderson!

The Least Among Them.png

"This charming and meticulously researched book will remind you of baseball’s power to change and enrich lives far beyond the diamond."

—Jonathan Eig, New York Times best-selling author of Luckiest Man, Opening Day, and Ali: A Life

From Compton to the Bronx.jpg

"A young man from Compton rises to the highest levels of baseball greatness.

Considered one of the classiest baseball players ever, this is Roy White's story, but it's also the story of a unique period in baseball history when the Yankees fell from grace and regained glory and the country dealt with societal changes in many ways."
