Hideki Matsui will sign a one-day minor league contract with the New York Yankees in late July so he can retire with the franchise. Prior to the July 28 game against the Tampa Bay Rays at Yankee Stadium, Matsui will ink the deal and the Yankees will dedicate the day to honoring him. The first 18,000 fans will receive Matsui bobbleheads, which portray him with his 2009 World Series MVP trophy.
