Maddux ‘almost certain’ to retire after 23 seasons

Longtime Las Vegas resident and Valley High graduate Greg Maddux likely will retire, according to agent Scott Boras, after 23 seasons in Major League Baseball.

Maddux, who lives in Spanish Trail and has a second home in Carlsbad, Calif., pitched for the Dodgers this postseason after Los Angeles acquired him from the San Diego Padres late in the regular season.

Boras talked to the New York Post on Monday night in Dana Point, Calif., where baseball’s general managers are meeting.

"He hasn't made a final decision, but for now it is doubtful he will play (any longer)," Boras said. "As it stands now, he is not going to play."

Maddux, the eighth-winningest pitcher baseball history, is a certain Hall of Famer. Only Warren Spahn with 367 wins has more victories in what is considered the live ball period of baseball, since 1920, than the 42-year-old Maddux.

Maddux is 355-227. He won four Cy Young awards in a row from 1992-95.
