The Boston Red Sox are a team that has experienced many great moments over the course of their history.
One of their best teams to date was the 2018 team that won the World Series.
That team won 108 games during the regular season and went wire to wire in the postseason, dominating each and every one of their opponents and not playing any elimination games.
Mitch Moreland was a member of that team.
The slugger recently announced his retirement from the game of baseball.
In Game 4 of the World Series against the Los Angeles Dodgers, Moreland hit a three-run home run that sparked a comeback win to put the team up 3-1 in the series.
On Twitter, Red Sox insider Tyler Milliken posted a video of this moment and congratulated Moreland on his retirement.
Congratulations to Mitch Moreland on officially announcing his retirement.
One of my favorite Red Sox players to root for in recent memory.
By the way, this ball still hasn’t landed.

The Red Sox won that game by a final score of 9-6 and ultimately took command of the series.
The next night, Boston got off to a hot start and ultimately eliminated the Dodgers with a 5-1 win to capture their fourth World Series title since breaking the curse in 2004.
Moreland made his debut in 2010 with the Texas Rangers and helped guide the team to back-to-back World Series appearances.
He joined the Red Sox in 2017 and was with the team until being acquired by the San Diego Padres at the trade deadline in 2020.
He last played in 2021 with the Oakland Athletics.
For his career, Moreland had a .251 average, 186 home runs, 618 RBI, an OPS of .764, and a WAR of 10.9.
His best season came in 2015 with the Rangers when he hit 23 home runs and drove in 85 runs while hitting for a .278 average.NEXT: Kenley Jansen Expresses Confidence In The Red Sox
