It was the end of his career. Ben Sheets made one last appearance with the Atlanta Braves before his planned retirement. Sheets, a four time All-Star, had joined the Braves midway though the season after missing all of last season following Tommy John surgery.
In his final outing Sheets recorded two strike outs.
“I can tell you without a shadow of a doubt I’m not playing again,” Sheets said. “No matter what, there is not enough help or money to pull me out of this one.”
