Related Topics: Eric Hosmer

Eric Hosmer hasn’t gotten much attention in San Diego since he hasn’t been a Padre for a couple years but he’s back in the news today after announcing his retirement from baseball. The 34-year-old played 4+ seasons with the Padres, earning just 3.7 bWAR in almost 600 games ($0.6 million dollar FanGraphs value in four full seasons).

Excited to take on this new challenge, MoonBall Media, and our first project, The Diggin’ Deep Podcast. The playing days are unfortunately over but I’m committed to giving back to the baseball community that helped shaped my life. Episode 1 live now.
