When the Chicago Cubs made history and won a World Series title in 2016, one of the main reasons they did was the pitching efforts of Jake Arrieta.

Throughout his career, Arrieta has been a work horse and evolved with the game in order to become dominant at times.

That career though has come to an end, as Jake Arrieta announced his retirement from the game on Monday.

The former CY Young Award winner put together an amazing career but he was at his best with the Chicago Cubs in their run to a World Series.
