Seth Stammler to Retire

Late yesterday afternoon, in the surprising flurry of MLS and RBNY news, it was announced that Seth Stammler will be retiring from professional soccer at the end of the 2010 season. He has elected to pursue an advanced degree at the University of Chicago.

Seth will retire from MLS as a one-team man, playing his entire professional career for the New York Red Bulls. He is currently the club’s longest continuously tenured player, has featured in 142 regular season matches for New York, starting 126 and logging 11,157 minutes. He ranks tied for second in franchise history in matches started and third in match appearances.

One great way that we can all say thank you to Seth for his many years of dedication to the Red Bulls is to help him win a $50,000 grant for his Sporting Chance Foundation, a charity which builds wells for potable drinking water in Haiti, and gives educational opportunities to underprivileged Haitian children.

Pepsi is holding a contest in which every MLS team has submitted a proposal for a $50,000 charitable grant. You can vote to have the $50 grand awarded to the Sporting Chance foundation. It is a meaningful way for us to say "Thank You" to one of our own. You can vote 25 times every day, so go and vote by clicking here now.

Good luck, Seth, and thanks for all your hard work on and off the pitch!
