SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (CBS4) – Veteran first baseman Todd Helton has been to the World Series with the Rockies and has lived in the NL West basement with the Rockies. Now he tells CBS4 he’s contemplating the end of his career with the Rockies.
Helton said he’s going to “do all that he can” to enjoy the season and play the best he can.
“The good thing is, there’s some days I wake up and I feel great. And I have the chance of going out and having a great game,” Helton said.
“In your mind, is this it?” CBS4’s Gary Miller asked Helton.
“I don’t know, I’m going to see. I don’t want to say that it’s it and then I get a wild hair. So we’ll see. It’s the last year of my contract, and I’d like to win, I’d like to go to the postseason. A lot of things have to go right for that to happen, though.”
Helton, who is still one of the most productive members of the team at the plate, says he’s “excited to see where the season takes us.”
