On the 11th (Korean time), Boer announced his retirement through personal SNS, saying, “All players have times when they know that their career has come to an end. Today is such a day for me. Thank you to everyone who has helped me in the meantime.”
Bohr began his professional career after being drafted by the Chicago Cubs with the 770th overall pick in the 25th round of the 2009 draft. Afterwards, Boer, who stepped on the big league stage with the Miami Marlins in 2014, played in 559 games over six major league seasons, including playing for the Philadelphia Phillies and LA Angels, recording 433 hits, 92 homers, 303 RBIs, 206 runs batting average of 0.253 OPS of 0.794.
Boer played an active role in Miami in his second year of debut in 2015 with 23 homers, 73 RBIs, a batting average of 0.262 OPS 0.800, and in 2017, he played in 108 games and had a career high season with 109 hits, 25 homers, 83 RBIs, 52 runs batting average of 0.289 OPS 0.902. Hit double digits for consecutive seasons. However, after he moved to Philadelphia in the 2018 season, his hitting began to decline rapidly, and he was very poor with a batting average of 0.172 with the Angels in 2019.
Bohr, whose position in the major leagues had narrowed, turned to the Asian stage and wore the uniform of the Hanshin Tigers of Nippon Professional Baseball. But Bohr fell short of expectations. He only hit 0.243 with 17 home runs and 45 RBIs in 99 games at Hanshin in the 2020 season, and entered the KBO League in 2021.
Bohr failed to rebound in Korea as well as in Japan. Boer played in 32 games for LG and recorded the worst performance with 17 hits and 3 home runs with a batting average of 0.170. He even tasted the humiliation of not being able to put his name on the postseason entry in the midst of endless sluggishness. After parting ways with LG, Bohr joined Diablos Rojos del Mexico in the Mexican League, but has now decided to take off his active uniform.
Boer said, “I will be grateful for the 13 years I have been able to play the baseball I love. I am grateful for the opportunity to fulfill my dream of becoming a major leaguer in 2014. And that was the best time of my life.” I hope there will be an opportunity to repay you.”
