Kyle Anson Calls it a Career
A naturally confident guy who could almost always be seen sporting his trademark cowboy hat and boots after games, Anson didn't hit as well as he might've liked last season, sporting just a .227 batting average to go with a .319 slugging percentage. He did, however, put together an excellent .374 on-base percentage, due mostly to the fact that he drew a lot of walks. Throughout his career, in fact, Anson walked 159 times and fanned just 147.
Anson was slated to return to Double-A this season, as the backup for Austin Romine. Problem was, Anson felt he deserved a chance to start, and this just wasn't the organization for him.
