Former Mets Pitcher Bill Pulsipher Hopes He Has Not Thrown His Final Pitch As A Pro

The end of what may be one of baseball’s most journeyman careers may be soon approaching as 37 year old Bill Pulsipher may be close to hanging up the cleats. Back in 1995, Pulsipher was one of the biggest prospects in baseball when he made his major league debut as a 21 year old. What has followed is an injury plagued 17 year career filled with ups and down that has seen Pulsipher suit up for 24 different major league, minor league, and independent league teams. Pulsipher currently is on the brink of finishing an injury plagued season with the Atlantic League’s Somerset Patriots. In the story link below, Pulsipher talks about facing another off season shoulder surgery, his desire to coach, and trying to come to terms with what may be the end of his playing career.
