    Former Texas Rangers catcher Ivan Rodriguez will announce his retirement Monday at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington, Texas, after 21 major league seasons.

    Rodriguez and the club confirmed plans Thursday. The Rangers plan to honor the All-Star catcher with an on-field ceremony before facing the New York Yankees. Rodriguez will throw out the ceremonial first pitch.


    Rodriguez, who won the 1999 American League MVP and went to 10 straight All-Star Games with the Rangers, was not able to find a job this spring. The 40-year-old affectionately known as “Pudge” began his two-decade-plus major league career with the Rangers in 1991.

    Rodriguez was also a four-time All-Star with the Detroit Tigers and won a World Series as a member of the 2003 Florida Marlins.
