Oct 2, 2016; Philadelphia, PA, USA; Philadelphia Phillies first baseman Ryan Howard (6) tips his cap to the fans as he leaves the game during the ninth inning against the New York Mets at Citizens Bank Park. The Philadelphia Phillies won 5-2.

The Colorado Rockies have surprisingly signed former Philadelphia Phillies star first baseman Ryan Howard, who’s been out of commission since May.

After spending 13 seasons with the Phillies, Ryan’s option was declined by the team following the 2016 season. He’d been slumping badly for a couple years, and one point, a Phillies columnist begged him to hang up the cleats for good.

However, Howard continued to play, albeit poorly, finishing the 2016 season with a .196 average. He was signed to a minor league deal with the Atlanta Braves to start the season but was released by the club on May 8.

Now 37 years of age, the former National League MVP (2006) and World Series champ (2008) will get another chance to play ball. Throughout his career, Howard has blasted 382 home runs and drove in 1,194 runs at the major league level.
