MLB | Castilla plays final game

The Associated Press reports Colorado Rockies 3B Vinny Castilla, who played in his final North American major-league game in October, officially called it a career Feb. 7 when he played first base in Mexico's 4-3 victory over Venezuela on the last day of the Caribbean Series. He went 1-for-4, with a double and a run scored. "I knew it was my last game, but I got emotional when I came to the park and all my teammates came to congratulate me," Castilla said. "When the players from the other countries hugged me after the game, I couldn't hold back the tears. I felt very emotional and proud for all my accomplishment."
