NEW YORK (AP) -Major League Baseball security chief Kevin Hallinan retired Thursday after a 21-year career that included time as the lead internal investigator on the Pete Rose case.
Hallinan created a system that put security agents at every ballpark and helped establish a career development program for players entering the big leagues.
A former New York policeman, he helped run the FBI/NYPD joint terrorism task force before joining baseball.
``Major League Baseball appreciates the long and dedicated service that Kevin provided to the game, and we look forward to continuing to avail ourselves of Kevin's expertise during his retirement as the need arises,'' commissioner Bud Selig said.
