Jeff Ptak calls off his career


SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico, February 2, 2017 – Only a few foreign players manage to transcend beyond the season or seasons they play in the different leagues around the world, but that was not the case of American Jeff Ptak in Puerto Rico.


Ptak announced on Wednesday his definitive retirement of professional Volleyball after an Achilles tendon injury left him out of action at Honda Cup of the Men's Superior Volleyball Final Series with the San Sebastian Caribs team.


During his time in Puerto Rico, Ptak has dressed the colors of Ponce, Corozal, Mayagüez and San Sebastián in the LVSM, winning the scoring title and the MVP awards in 2007 and 2015.


He was a big tank in the court and a gentleman out of it, which earned him the affection of the fans and the respect of his opponents on the other side of the net.


On behalf of the Puerto Rican Volleyball Federation, its president Dr. Cesar Trabanco and the volleyball fans in Puerto Rico we can only say THANK YOU JEFF.
