The Hawks officially announced on Monday that Arihito Muramatsu would be retiring after the current season.  The Hawks actually had a Ni-gun practice game schedule on Monday, but the rain washed the game out and the club switched gears and instead held a retirement ceremony for Muramatsu -- the Hawks gave Muramatsu one at bat and then allowed him to round the bases and slide head-first into home.

On the 28th, the Hawks held a press conference to give Muramatsu a chance to talk to the media about his decision.  Muramatsu also left some parting words to fans at the official Hawks' site.
