​Shane Victorino put together a very nice major league career, hitting .275/.340/.425 with 108 home runs, 489 RBI, and 731 runs scored. The spark plug Victorino also won two World Series titles, one with the Phillies in 2008 and one with the Red Sox in 2013. 


While Victorino had not officially announced his retirement until late Monday, he had not played in the majors since 2015 when, as an Angel, he went 1-for-2 with a double and a walk in his final game in the bigs.

​​Now, Victorino plans to sign a one-day contract with the Philadelphia Phillies, where he spent 2005-2012. Victorino will be able to retire as a Phillie, something that means a lot to him and the fan base. ​​

​​This will be a nice moment for Victorino, who will get to retire as a member of the team where he spent the most time and enjoyed the most success. He'll always be an indelible member of the 2013 Sox, too, where his ALCS dinger against Max Scherzer will endure.


But yeah, you think Victorino, you think Philadelphia. We just can't wait to see what the ceremony's like.
