Along with 27 other MLB teams, the Boston Red Sox are sitting at home watching the World Series. Boston has made the postseason just one time since their magical 2018 World Series run and received news surrounding one of the 2018 heroes.

Former Red Sox utility man Brock Holt announced his official retirement from baseball on Thursday via a post on Instagram. Check out the post below.

Accompanied by a highlight video of his best career moments, Holt's post read "Damn it that was fun. For parts of 10 years I got to do the only thing I ever wanted to do…play Major League Baseball. Today I hang them up knowing I did the best I could for me, my family, and my teammates. I’m proud of every single second of it. If you were a part of it at any point…know that I love you and I am forever grateful! We had one hell of a ride."

Naturally, the video was littered with highlights from Holt's days in a Red Sox uniform. The 10-year veteran spent 7 seasons in Boston, including an All-Star appearance in 2015 and a World Series title in 2018.

Holt is best remembered for his improbable postseason accomplishment. In 2018, he became the only player in MLB history to hit for a cycle during playoff baseball.
