Colorado Rockies Outfielder Matt Holliday, coming off a dream season with the National League champs in which he finished runner-up in league Most Valuable Player voting, returned to Stillwater High School to have his No. 24 baseball jersey retired.

The 2007 season was special for Holliday, who earned an All-Star Game appearance and helped Colorado reach its first World Series.

So does Holliday ever pinch himself, wondering if he’s living a dream life?

“In high school, I never dreamed I would have the chance to play in the major leagues or play in the World Series. With the Lord’s blessings and hard work, I’ve been able to do that. I always thought I had the talent, but I’ve learned that you have to keep working at things every day. With hard work, you can achieve your dreams.”
