On Wednesday, former Florida Marlin pitcher and 2003 World Champion Carl Pavano announced his retirement from baseball. He cited injuries as apart of his decision to retire now.
It seems like Pavano already has a job after baseball lined up:

Pavano was apart of the series of moves the Marlins made at the 2002 trade deadline, which eventually set the table for the Marlins 2003 World Series run. He pitched for the Marlins for 2 1/2 seasons, until the end of the 2004. Pavano left the Marlins to sign a lucrative contract with the New York Yankees.
In the Marlins 2003 World Series season, Pavano played a major role, throwing 201 innings in the regular season while posting a 3.77 FIP.
In the postseason, he was even better, posting a 1.40 ERA and a 2.10 FIP 19 1/3 innings.
If he does indeed get the role with FSN Florida, it will be interesting to see how Pavano transitions from his playing career to his broadcast career.
