Alumni Weekend - Shane Victorino Retires as a Phillie

Hi everybody,

Former Phillies center fielder Shane Victorino retired as a Phillie before Friday's (August 3rd) game against the Miami Marlins.  Victorino played for the Phils from 2005-2012 (when he was traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers).

Victorino (nicknamed the Flyin' Hawaiian) won three Gold Gloves and was a two-time NL All-Star as a member of the Phillies.  He also was part of five NL East Championship teams (2007-2011), two National League Championship teams (2008-2009) and the 2008 World Champions.  Victorino would later be a part of an American League Championship and World Series Championship with the Boston Red Sox in 2013.

Congrats on a great career, Shane!  I look forward to seeing you on the Phillies Wall of Fame someday.

Greeting the fans...

Thanking the Phillies and the fans...

Throwing out the first pitch with his son...

Thank you Shane....

Talk to you soon,
Little Chase
