Class Act to Retire

Jeff Conine will retire on March 31 as a Marlin. He had two stints with the team and played key roles in the team's 1997 and 2003 World Series victories.

He was and remains a class act. Please click on this link for my family's one interaction with Mr. Marlin when he was a Phillie during the stretch run of 2006.

Thanks for the memories, Jeff.

And thanks for making a certain September night a year and a half ago a very memorable one for my two young baseball fans.
