    CYRUS Baguio quietly came out of retirement and is now playing for Valenzuela City in the MPBL.

    The 41-year-old wingman made his debut for the team last week in an 87-78 win over Caloocan or more than a year since retiring from the PBA.

    His agent Danny Espiritu said he hasn’t talked to Baguio yet about his decision to play again, but he’s aware of the three-time PBA champion's comeback with Valenzuela.

    In his first competitive game since 2019, Baguio scored seven points behind a perfect 3-of-3 shooting from the field to help his side improve to a 4-2 record for sixth place out of the 21-team standings.

      Baguio's arrival gives Valenzuela another top offensive option behind Ronjay Buenafe, Patrick Cabahug, and Andre Armenion.

      A native of Iligan City, Baguio played 16 seasons in the PBA for teams such as Red Bull, Burger King, Barangay Ginebra, Alaska, Phoenix, and NLEX.
