Stephen Vogt, who is reportedly one of the nicest and most genuine guys in the MLB, announced his retirement after 10 MLB seasons. (Being a catcher wears on you.)
On Wednesday, in the last game of the year, before his first plate appearance of his final MLB game, Vogt was introduced at home by his three children.

Check out his utter surprise and joy at hearing his children introduce him.
