Andruw Jones, one of the greatest defensive players in baseball history, plans to retire after 20 seasons in the U.S. and Japan.

The five-time All-Star had been contemplating a return to Major League Baseball following two seasons playing professionally in the Japan Pacific League, but at the Atlanta Braves’ FanFest event Saturday he said that he will likely be calling it a career. No official retirement announcement has been scheduled.

I’m probably not going to play, probably soon retire. I just feel like I can be at home with my kid and teach him a couple things. I didn’t announce yet, but I probably will.
