It's been reported by foxsports.com that OF Grant Desme has announced his retirement from baseball in favor of pursuing his priesthood.
I'm incredibly shocked by this news and pretty disappointed too. There have been many debates on AN about whether Desme is for real or not but you can't deny that it's a shame we'll never know for sure because Desme could've been something special.
That being said, I wish him the best of luck and admire his decision because it cannot be easy to give up on your (initial) dream, especially when you're still young and talented. At least he'll be leaving after a healthy and productive season as opposed to his two previous years.
