The Marines held a retirement press conference for Hori at Chiba Marine Stadium today.

Said Hori, "Baseball isn't a sport where you can keep playing just because you want to.  I've done what I can and I'm feeling good about this decision."

The Marines have reportedly offered Hori a job in the front office, but Hori placed that offer on hold.
