There will be no foolin’ with Poulin’s old number, as the Winnipeg Goldeyes plan on retiring it.
Max Poulin’s #6 jersey will be retired June 14 during a ceremony prior to the Goldeyes’ game against the Sioux Falls Fighting Pheasants, the team announced Tuesday.
“As the longest serving member in Goldeyes history, he is very deserving of the honour,” Goldeyes GM Andrew Collier said in a statement.
The shortstop wore the jersey from 2001-2008 and played in a team record 676 games during his career. Poulin also holds the hitting record at 631, 34 triples and 2,374 at-bats, not to mention 227 walks.
Poulin’s number becomes the third retired by the Goldeyes, following Brian Duva’s #5 and Donnie Smith’s #21.
