As the Detroit Tigers finish up their 2018 season one of their recent stars is calling it a career.

According to WDIV, Tigers Designated Hitter Victor Martinez will play his final game of his career in Detroit on Saturday against the Royals.

The Tigers still have two road series left against the Twins and Brewers but Martinez wants his final at bats to be in front of the home fans.

Martinez has been in Detroit since the 2011 season.  Before Detroit he was with the Cleveland Indians before moving on to the Boston Red Sox.

He was a catcher also played some first base before he switched to DH full time due to knee injuries.    He was a great hitter for the Tigers up into the last few years when his age caught up to him.

2014 was memorable year for him in Detroit where he was a runner up to Mike Trout for the MVP.

I've enjoyed watching Victor play and also enjoyed the one season I played fantasy baseball where he was one of my best players.  One of the best to have played in the majors in the last 18 years.

Congrats on a great career Victor.  You will always be remembered as one of the best designated hitters in Detroit.
