Hideo Nomo Retires

Pitcher Hideo Nomo has retired, according to the AP (hat tip to NPB Tracker).

Nomo won 78 games in Japan in five seasons, and then exploited a loophole and retired from Japanese baseball.  He was a phenomenon in ’95, coming over as a free agent to win the ROY with the Dodgers as a 26 year-old.  He ended up winning 123 big league games.
