Brian McCann announced his retirement after the Atlanta Braves' Game 5 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals on Wednesday.

The 35-year-old is a veteran of 15 Major League seasons.

"This is it for me," McCann said. "I'm going to go home and be a dad and play with those kids."

McCann is a seven-time All-Star and won the 2017 World Series with the Houston Astros.
