Adam Dunn, who played four years of his 14-year MLB career with the Chicago White Sox is retiring, as he said following the Oakland A’s playoff loss on Tuesday night to the Kansas City Royals.
On Wednesday, Dunn from his official Twitter account tweeted a thank you to his fans:
Sure, I became frustrated with Dunn at times the past four season, but he always seemed like a very quality person, and like others, he represented the White Sox very well.
He was never in news for being in trouble, and he could always bring fans to their feet with any of his 106 home runs with the White Sox the past four seasons.
My favorite home run of Dunn was this season, on May 23, when he hit a a two-run homer off New York Yankees closer David Robertson for a 6-5 White Sox walk-off win.

The game also happened to be my 30th birthday, so that is going to be the homer I’ll always remember for Dunn.
Dunn’s career might be one of “What could have been,” if he cut down on his strikeouts, but still, he had a career most folks would love to have. He played the game for 14 seasons, so he must have done something right, especially if five teams wanted him on their roster through out that span.
Best of luck to Dunn in the next phase of his life.
