San Francisco Giants long-time catcher Buster Posey has decided to hang up his jersey after 12 seasons, according to Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic.

“I’m definitely just going to take some time with my wife, talk with her, be able to be a full-time dad of four kids for the first time in a while,” Posey said. “Yeah, just kind of take it slow and see how things progress.”

The 34-year-old has been with the Giants his entire career, starting with his debut back in 2009. He made his last MLB appearance on October 3, where the Giants eventually lost the NLDS series 3-2 to the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Posey advocated for better MLB rules to protect both catchers and baserunners against home-plate collisions.

“I try to keep myself out of the conversation as much as I can because I know people are going to connect me to it regardless,” Posey said in January 2014. “I’m just kind of sitting back and letting the higher powers hammer it out. I have my thoughts, but I’ll keep them to myself.”

Posey won three World Series championships with the Giants in 2010, 2012, and 2014. He was also selected to the All-Star team seven times, awarded a batting title, a Gold Glove, four Silver Sluggers, and brought home the National League MVP in 2012.
