As was expected, one of the all-time Washington Nationals greats, Ryan Zimmerman, announced today that he is retiring from Baseball.
Drafted in the First Round in 2005, Zimmerman made the big leagues that year, and remained with the Nationals for all of his sixteen seasons.
An All-Star in 2009 and 2017, Zimmerman was a solid power hitter, who had seven 20-Home Run years with a pair of Silver Sluggers (2009 & 2010). Batting .277 lifetime for Washington, Zimmerman was a veteran presence on the 2019 team that won the World Series, the first for the organization.
Zimmerman was a member of the Washington Nationals 2019 World Series Championship Team, and is at present the all-time franchise leader in Games Played (1,799), Runs Scored (964), Hits (1,846), Doubles (417), Home Runs (284) and RBIs (1,061).
Zimmerman is Hall of Fame eligible in 2027, though is unlikely to make it past the first ballot, though he is a prime candidate to be honored by the Nationals in the future.
We here at Notinhalloffame.com would like to wish Ryan Zimmerman the best in his post-playing career.
