Fifteen teams would just have been too many for Edwin Jackson.

The pitcher announced his retirement Saturday on his 39th birthday and the 19th anniversary of his big league debut.

Jackson played for 14 teams in his 17 seasons in Major League Baseball, an all-time record.

“Today I am happily hanging up my cleats…I’m super grateful to have had 14 different organizations allow me the opportunity to represent them,” Jackson said in an Instagram post.

He also threw one of the game’s funkiest no-hitters when he was with the Diamondbacks on June 25, 2010. He walked eight batters and threw 149 pitches to accomplish the feat.

He was named an All-Star in 2009 when he was with Detroit.
