Mike Cameron hints at retirement

Mike Cameron, currently in his 17th season, hinted that he may retire after the season, the Palm Beach Post writes.

“It’s a small window that’s wide open,” he said. “I’m not going to make a decision now because there are too many variables much more than how I feel.”

The Marlin, who played earlier this season with the Red Sox, has been set back with a sore hamstring. The formerly durable outfielder has been brittle the last two seasons, struggling with the hamstring, a left wrist sprain, a double sports hernia that required surgery and a kidney stone. The 38-year-old is hitting .239/.333/.423 with Florida in 163 plate appearances.

“I may be too young to quit, but my body’s telling me different. My body’s 45,” he said.

Mike Cameron hints at retirement

Recently attended the Trevor Hoffman retirement ceremony at Petco Park, and the Padres opponents that day were the Marlins.  Cameron started that day in CF, and took time out after his warmups to sign autographs for kids barely getting back to the dugout before the first pitch.  After playing here in San Diego for a few years, he still has a fan base because of the person he is and the effort he gave out on the field.  If this season truly is the end of the road, Baseball is definitely going to miss your class and especially that smile.

He was a good, dependable outfielder and a great guy in the clubhouse.  MLB could use more like him.

I will never forget that collision he had with Carlos Beltran. Cameron was a great defensive center fielder with some pop, and speed.
