Kerry Wood Retires the way he began

The sudden retirement of Kerry Wood showed a class act of the Chicago Cubs by letting him go out and face one more batter.  On 3 pitches, he struck out Dayan Vaciedo and exited the game the way he began.  Kerry Wood finished his career with a ridiculous 10.3 K/9.

Here's a nifty dual patch card featuring Kerry Wood and Kris Benson.  The 2003 Fleer Press Clippings card is numbered 20/150.  I love this card because of the patches and the numbering of this particular card celebrates Kerry's 20 strikeouts in a single game.

Congratulations on a great career Kerry Wood!
