After an injury plagued career, Nick Milton has finally decided to call it quits. The 6"0 , 230 lb Outfielder and once promising college standout has been with various organizations the past few seasons and was ready for his big break while with the Tigers when he recently tore his ACL for the second time in four years. Among Milton's injuries the last few seasons were two knee surgeries, elbow surgery, neck surgery and hand surgery.
"Milton played the game the way it was meant to be played and used his body as a human battering ram", said a former coach. "I just wish we had more guys like him out there, I have seen him run straight into Outfield walls going after balls before not even thinking of slowing down". This guy had a tremendous career in front of him, but the way he played made him succeptible to a career ending injury everytime he took the field. When this guys went on the field , he definitely did not shy away from giving it his all no matter what the consequences. A formmer teammate told me that he practiced as hard as he played and that he had to be left out of drills occasionally because he would try and go after balls so hard he would injure himself in practice.
Whatever Milton decides to do with himself now , I am sure he will be successful. Rumor has it he is teaming up with an ex baseball player from the Fl organization and starting a sporting apparel business. I wish this guy luck in whatever he decides to do...
