Red Sox Captain Varitek to Retire After 15 Seasons

Boston Red Sox captain Jason Varitek is retiring from Major League Baseball after 15 seasons and two World Series championships.

The 39-year-old catcher will make his announcement tomorrow evening at the team’s spring training facility in Fort Myers, Florida, the Red Sox announced today in an e-mailed release. Varitek, the team’s captain from 2005 through last season, is the only player in MLB history to catch four no-hitters.

A native of Rochester, Michigan, Varitek was drafted by the Seattle Mariners in 1994 and made his major-league debut three years later with the Red Sox. He batted .256 with 193 home runs and 757 runs batted in during his major-league career, spent entirely in Boston.

A three-time All-Star and a Gold Glove winner for defense in 2005, Varitek won World Series titles with the team in 2004 and 2007. He caught no-hitters thrown by Hideo Nomo in 2001, Derek Lowe in 2002, Clay Buchholz in 2007 and Jon Lester in 2008.
