Young spent his first 13 seasons in Texas, before suiting up for the Phillies and Dodgers in 2013. It was a final chapter that most Rangers fans would rather forget, and Friday's announcement provided a more palatable ending.
Young was never a superstar, but from 2003 to 2011 he didn't once finish with a batting average below .284, and he topped the .300 mark seven times in those nine years.
Even more impressive than his ability to pile up singles and doubles was Young's ability to stay on the field. During that aforementioned nine-year stretch, he logged 155 games or more eight times.
Given Young's durability and his skill at spraying line drives all over the field, it should come as no surprise that he holds the Rangers all-time records in a number of categories. His notable team records include hits (2,230), doubles (415), triples (55), total bases (3,286), runs (1,085), games (1,823) and at-bats (7,399).
