Greg Maddux, regarded by many as the greatest pitcher of his generation has announced his retirement from Major League Baseball after 23 seasons on the mound.

Maddux has more wins than any living pitcher and ranks eighth on the all-time list with 355 victories - one more than Roger Clemens.

Maddux, who'll turn 43 in April, played for the Chicago Cubs, the Atlanta Braves, the Los Angeles Dodgers and the San Diego Padres capturing his only World Series crown in 1995 with the Braves.
