Chase Utley to retire at the end of the season

Chase Utley is in the midst of his 16th season at the big-league level.

The Dodgers second baseman and longtime Mets nemesis is planning to announce his retirement at a press conference Friday afternoon at Dodger Stadium, The Post's Joel Sherman reported.

If he doesn't play another game, Utley will finish with over 1,800 hits, 259 home runs, and was hit by a pitch 201 times during his career (eighth-most in the history of the MLB). He achieved the bulk of his success with the Philadelphia Phillies, making five All-Star teams and winning four Silver Slugger awards between 2006 and 2010. He is renowned for his base-stealing ability, with 153 steals in 175 attempts.

A six-time All-Star, Utley played 13 of his seasons with the Philadelphia Phillies and helped them win a World Series title in 2008. Utley signed a two-year deal with Los Angeles last offseason.

Utley has provided a veteran's perspective and been influential in the clubhouse with the Dodgers' young roster.

There's no player who better personifies the Phillies 2008 World Championship than Utley, who likely retires as a borderline Hall of Fame candidate who likely won't receive enough support.

Born in nearby Pasadena, Utley played at Long Beach Poly High and UCLA.
