Bartolo Colon, 50, was honored by the New York Mets on Sunday when he announced his retirement after 21 Major League seasons.

"My first home was Cleveland," Colon said through an interpreter during a pregame news conference, "But now I'm here with the Mets and I feel really comfortable here."

Colon went 247-188 with a 4.12 ERA and 2,535 strikeouts in 3,461 2/3 innings.
