Howie Kendrick wants to keep playing after magical World Series run with Nationals
At 36, Howie Kendrick isn’t ready to call it a career just yet after a magical playoff run with the Nationals.
Kendrick, who has played for four teams in 14 years, has only “thought about retirement seriously once” in his career, according to The Athletic, when he moved from the Dodgers to the Phillies before the 2017 season.
After missing 122 games last year with a ruptured right Achilles tendon, many questioned whether he’d be able to return to the field. Kendrick vowed he would be back. And he kept true to his promise as he came up big for the Nationals this year to help the franchise win its first World Series title.
In Game 7 of the World Series against the Astros, Kendrick hit a two-run homer in the seventh inning, turning a 2-1 deficit into a 3-2 lead.
