It's a sad, bittersweet day for Colorado Rockies, Arizona Diamondbacks, Miami Marlins, Los Angeles Dodgers, & Milwaukee Brewers fans as a very familiar face to each of these clubs is retiring, ending a 15-year career...Craig Counsell, known to many as "C.C.", will be joining the Milwaukee Brewers, taking on a front office position with the team.
I've been a fan of Counsell's since way back when in his early days with the Rockies, along with former Rockie & Diamondback Quinton McCracken...Craig has always been known for his quirky batting stance and his quiet nature...also for his music selection for his at-bat song, the ever-popular "All Along The Watchtower" by the late Jimi Hendrix. Also a big fan of The Police, Craig has been known to drive into ballparks jamming the tune "Don't Stand So Close To Me".
Good Luck C.C....you'll be missed on the field but I'm sure this isn't the last we'll hear of you!
