So Taguchi has decided to call it quits.  He posted the following statement at his official blog.

This is just a quick update.

Today, July 31, 2012, has unfortunately become the end point of my baseball career.

I will provide another update with more information soon.

To the people that supported me.  To the people that believed I would return.

I am very sorry that I could not live up to your expectations.

Right now, this is the best that I can do.  I am sorry.
