The Orix Buffaloes announced today that 32-year-old Daisuke Maeda was retiring and joining the front office staff.

Statement from Maeda provided to the media:

I spent nine years as a player in this organization and I am grateful to Orix for giving me an opportunity to continue working in baseball.  I sunk everything into baseball over the years and I hope that I was able to create at least a few memories for the fans.  My friends, family, and those around me were so happy when I hit a grand slam and helped the team record a victory on a shutout that that game has become a fond memory for me.  I want to now do my best to help support this team as a member of the front office.  Thank you all for your warm support over the last 9 years.
