Paul Quantrill, who will pitch for Team Canada in the WBC, has said will retire after the tournament is over.
He was considering coming back for a 15th season but didn't feel the fire to play, so he decided to make his stint with Canada at the World Baseball Classic his swan song.
"It's getting to a point in my career and in my life where I just feel there are some other avenues I want to go down," he said. "I feel I got gas in the tank but I think you should base your decision more on the motivation, do I really want to play and enjoy myself. ...
"I'm going to have fun with this and then go home to my cottage."
In Quantrill's career he pitched in 14 seasons and his best years were 2002 and 2003 with the Dodgers. Which allowed him to cash in on a big free agent contract with the Yankees, which didn't go very well.
Quantrill also made the All-Star team with Toronto in 2001. He is third alltime in saves among pitchers whose last name starts with Q (Dan Quisenberry 244, Joe Quinn 57).
