Mike Napoli is celebrating MLB retirement exactly how you'd expect


Mike Napoli's playing career is over, but the party has just begun.

The former Boston Red Sox slugger announced his retirement from baseball Saturday on social media.

And about 10 minutes after his announcement, Napoli fired off his first post-baseball Instagram post from -- you guessed it -- a bar.


Red Sox fans who have seen the iconic photo of Napoli walking shirtless down Boylston Street following Boston's 2013 World Series victory won't be surprised in the least that the 37-year-old is celebrating his retirement with some victuals.

To which we say: Toss 'em back, Mike. You deserve it.
