Statement from the Giants on Randy Johnson's retirement
01/05/2010 8:13 PM ET
"The entire San Francisco Giants organization would like to salute Randy Johnson on a brilliant Hall of Fame career and congratulate him on his retirement. He has been a tremendous champion of this great game, escalating to heights that few have reached. He will go down as one of the greatest pitchers in the history of the game.

"It was a pleasure this last season to have Randy in a Giants uniform. His fierce competitive spirit and his role as a mentor to our young pitching staff helped our team immensely as we returned to a winning way. We were proud to see him reach his 300th win June 4 in Washington, D.C., joining the other teams for whom Randy pitched throughout his 22-year career in saluting him on that momentous occasion.

"We wish him, his wife Lisa, and his children all the best in the future. We look forward to celebrating with him in Cooperstown in five years."
