Ben Zobrist Officially Announces Retirement
After months of speculation, the former Cub makes it official.
The end of Ben Zobrist's career wasn't exactly storybook, but Zobrist will always be remembered fondly by Cub fans for having one of the biggest hits in Cub history.
No word on what is next for Zobrist but I wouldn't be surprised if you see him pop up around the Cubs team this year. He already was a guest of the team during spring training and it's no secret that he was a valuable member of the clubhouse when he was with the Cubs.
On behalf of Cub fans everywhere, we say thank you, Ben, and wish you well with whatever you decide to do with the rest of your life.
The Cubs regular season begins March 26. You can catch every Cub game right here on 1440 WROK, Rockford's home of the Chicago Cubs.
