Nov 2 (THAINDIAN NEWS) The Most Valuable Player of the World Series of 2010, Edgar Renteria may have played his last game with the San Fransisco Giants, since he is considering retirement, but the thirty-five year old player definitely went out in style if he does decide to leave.

In a hit that is being compared to baseball legend Babe Ruth, Edgar called his shot in the seventh inning to make a three-score home run which broke a scoreless tie in Wednesday night’s Game 5 of the World Series. The Giants went on to win the game, thanks to those points scored in Edgar’s hit. He had told his team mates before the game that he was going to hit a home run, reports Fox Sports.

“He Babe Ruth-ed it,” outfielder Aaron Rowand stated.

It is not the first time he has done such a thing. He also provided the game winning points in a World Series for the Marlins back in 1997. He, Yogi Berra, Lou Gehrig, and Joe DiMaggio are the only players in baseball history to pull this off.

Edgar is considering retirement due to the man injuries which he has sustained during his year sin the game. He was limited to 72 games this season because of them, and as he went into the playoffs, he had only been able to play one of the last thirteen games with his team.
