Yomiuri Giants: Brian Bannister listed as retired by NPB commissioner’s office

by on Apr.26, 2011 @ 6:00 pm, under NPB

It appears Brian Bannister has decided to retire.  At least that's what the NPB commissioner's office is now reporting.

UPDATE @ 6:45pm - Team rep Hidetoshi Kiyotake told reporters that the club received confirmation that Bannister has no intention of playing baseball in either the US or Japan.

UPDATE @ 10:50pm - Via fighting ham's link down below: Jiji Press has a slightly different quote from Kiyotake: "He told us that after thinking things through, he no longer wanted to play baseball anywhere [in the world].  We have on choice but to respect that decision."
