CAIDIC FIRM ON RETIREMENT
Manila, Feb.13, 2000 - Star cager Allan Caidic announced that he has retired for good and he's now ready to concentrate on calling the shots for Barangay Ginebra in the coming PBA campaign.
San Miguel and Ginebra are set to to hold a ceremony on Caidicís retirement either during the 26th season opener featuring Ginebra versus Red Bull or during the first San Miguel-Ginebra match this season.
Both San Miguel and Ginebra intend to retire Caidic's No. 8 jersey, making him only the third PBA player given such an honor. Only Bogs Adornado's No. 33 Alaska shirt and Ramon Fernandez's No. 19 San Miguel uniform have been retired since the league's birth in 1975.
Caidic had played with the Great Taste-Presto ballclub but was of tremendous help to San Miguel's cause in the 6 years that he wore the San Miguel uniform.
Although he started out his PBA career as a Great Taste Coffee-maker, Caidic spent much of his amateur days playing for SMC teams, including Lagerlite and Northern Consolidated Cement.
He was with Chip Engelland, Jeff Moore, Dennis Still, Hector Calma and Samboy Lim in the all-amateur NCC squad which won the 1985 Reinforced Conference crown.
