Pressy tweeted the news Saturday, coinciding with a lengthy write-up in the Chicago Tribune.
Pressy told the Tribune Friday:
I’ve been there a third of a century, 33 years, and I think the cup is full. I was debating it back-and-forth, but I really just wanted to spend more quality time with my family. Around the All-Star break I really got to thinking about it and made my decision.
Pressy has been with the Cubs for 33 seasons.
