Ed Houston is the league leader in RBI’s with 207. He retired during this off-season after not being signed by any team. I caught up with him on the golf course at Palm Beach where he looked really happy. Said that it really hurt when no team wanted his services for this season but now that he has spent so much time with his family he couldn’t think of a better time to retire.
