Drew Robinson home run

Drew Robinson, who survived an April 2020 suicide attempt only to return to professional baseball this season, is retiring from baseball.

Robinson made the announcement in a note posted on social media Friday. He said that his minor league team’s current series would be his last.

Even though he is retiring as a player, Robinson will remain employed by the San Francisco Giants. The franchise is making him a mental health advocate.

Robinson, 29, was attempting to play pro ball with one eye. He went 11/86 with three doubles and three home runs. But he struck out 53 times, proving what a difficult task he faced.

A fourth-round pick in 2010, Robinson played 100 career MLB games from 2017-2019 for Texas and St. Louis. Simply being able to play baseball again — and homer in Triple-A — was a successful outcome given where Robinson was last spring.
