Grant Desme seemed to be at peace: The guy had just won the 2009 AFL MVP and was the A's top prospect. Well, apparently, he wasn't. " I wasn't at peace...[now,] after [the decision] I can say I am."
The prized Oakland prospect decided to retire today to pursue a higher calling.
"I was doing really good at baseball." He said in an interview with MLB network. "But I needed to get down to the bottom of things, what was good in my life, and what I wanted to do with my life."
What did he want to do with the rest of his life?
He wants to be a priest.
"Its selfish of me to do that [baseball] when I feel like G-d was calling me more."
"Billy [Beane, A's general manager] has been very supportive."
"I have no regrets."
Good luck outside of baseball, Grant...
