1) Paul Konerko

One of the most beloved players in White Sox history, Konerko has been enjoying retirement for two years. He told the Chicago Tribune in March he is still burned out, but could see being a manager or advisor eventually. 

"Paul Konerko: “If you did everything you should have done and dedicated yourself along the way of that career, you should walk away completely burned out on baseball,” Konerko said. “I walked away burned out, and I’m still burned out on it all. Maybe one day I won’t be, and I’ll resurface.”"

Konerko sounds like someone that’s enjoying his children who are four, seven and ten.

"“If you’re lucky enough to get to play the game as long as I did — going back to when you’re 18 years old and signed a contract all the way to 38 — I checked off a lot of boxes and got to wring every last drop out of my experience and my body,” Konerko said."

Konerko will almost definitely stay retired for the foreseeable future.
