ESPN is reporting that all-star baseball player Alfonso Soriano is retiring.

"I've lost the love and passion to play the game," Soriano said in a radio interview Tuesday in his native Dominican Republic. "Right now, my family is the most important thing."

Soriano, 38, completed in 2014 the final year of his $136 million, eight-year contract he signed with the Chicago Cubs before the 2007 season.

He ends his career 50th in baseball history with 412 home runs.

"Although I consider myself in great shape, my mind is not focused on baseball," Soriano said.
Soriano was released by the Yankees last July after playing just 67 games.

I give him credit for his honesty. More older athletes should follow his lead.
