The Niner, Jeff Conine Is Calling It A Career...

Just a quick note before I had to dreamland, if you all didn't read or heard about former two-stint Jeff Conine and his impending retirement.

VERO BEACH, Fla. -- Fittingly, Mr. Marlin will ultimately retire as a Marlin.

According to a source, Jeff Conine, one of the most popular players in Florida history, will sign a one-day contract on March 28, and then retire as a member of the Marlins.

Nicknamed "Mr. Marlin," the 41-year-old was a member of the team's inaugural roster, and he enjoyed two stints with the organization. A versatile performer who mostly played first base and the outfield, he was a vital part of the franchise's World Series titles in 1997 and 2003.

Conine, who resides year-round in South Florida in Weston, is scheduled to sign his one-day contract March 28, when the Marlins play an exhibition game against the Yankees at Dolphin Stadium.
Happy trails, Jeff and good luck in whatever you do. You were always a gamer in Baltimore, and myself and Oriole fans appreciated it.
