Jason Repko retires at 32
This one caught us off guard last week…but Jason Repko will not make the trip to Long Island on Tuesday and has retired from professional baseball. Repko informed the coaching staff of his decision during the last home series against Somerset, and the two parties decidied this weekend’s series at Lancaster would be it.
Of course, Repko’s swan song was a 4 for 5 day where he scored two runs, and his final at-bat was a triple to centerfield. He hangs it up after action in seven MLB seasons between 2005 and 2012, with the Dodgers, Twins and Red Sox. He played in 360 Major League games, and all 24 so far for the Revolution this season. Repko batted .253 with a homer and 11 RBI in that time.
The Revolution roster is currently at 26 active players. It must be trimmed to 25 per league rules by June 1.
