Kendrys Morales talked to me about his decision to retire after a 13-year MLB career: “It was a hard decision but everything in life must come to an end. I spent many years, starting in Cuba, playing baseball and lost a lot of time with my family. That's one of the reasons why I made the decision to retire, to make up for lost time.
