Todd Helton stays classy with farewell ad in Denver Post
- Updated: October 1, 2013
Some trends get old quickly. I can’t say the athlete “thank you” ads to the fans is one of those. It’s a classy move by a player and, despite how it may feel because of the media coverage of such outward displays of gratitude, is still relatively infrequent. Here’s the latest example from longtime Colorado Rockies first baseman Todd Helton.
Helton, a five-time All-Star, took a moment following the official close of his career (and the whole horse thing) to thank the fans of Colorado for their support over his 17-year career.
Well done, Mr. Helton.
