Rivendell reliever Elanor Muddyfoot won’t be back next year. The 37-year-old announced plans today to retire at the end of the 2035 campaign, saying that it was time to call it a career.
“I could probably play another year,” Muddyfoot said, “but I don’t have that fire you need to play well. And I’m not going out there on those terms. It’s a disservice to the Royals and baseball in general. There are just too many aches and pains in this old body for me to continue playing.”
Muddyfoot has pitched in 969 games in her career, posting 408 saves, 936 strikeouts and a record of 69 victories and 82 losses. Her lifetime ERA stands at 3.16.
