MLB | David Eckstein not retired

Thu, 30 Jun 2011 06:17:01 -0700

Free-agent 2B David Eckstein (Padres) said he's not retired and received an offer to sign with a team four weeks ago, but he turned it down. Eckstein said it had to be the right situation. His brother, Washington Nationals hitting coach Rick Eckstein, said "I think in this game you get to a point where you know what you can do, and you want to be in a situation where people believe in you." "David has been a great attribute to baseball for 10 years. He brings a certain element to every team he's been a part of, and at some point, what he brings, people don't see it as a value. So he has decided not to play." Eckstein said.
