Clifton Park, NY - Brian Sweeney has now officially retired from professional baseball, following an 18 year career that included parts of four seasons in the major leagues.
The 40-year-old righthanded reliever from Clifton Park went to high school in White Plains, then settled in the Capital Region after marrying a young woman from Troy.
Sweeney is still playing baseball this summer -- as an outfielder -- in the Albany Twilight League.
