Carlos Beltran announces retirement after 20 seasons

Carlos Beltran announces retirement after 20 seasons”

The 20-year veteran goes out on top, with a World Series win. The 20-year Major League Baseball veteran announced his retirement through the Players' Tribune rather than spend another offseason looking for a job.

In the article called "Muchas gracias, beisbol", Beltran counted his blessings, including his 20 years in the game.

Beltran is one of the great players of his era, and he should be a Hall of Famer. After winning his first World Series with the Houston Astros, the 20-year major league veteran has made a decision to call it a career. Increasingly, however, a consensus has built among the media and among more analytically-minded fans that Beltran is, in fact, worthy of induction, and I suspect he will have a plaque in Cooperstown eventually. I am blessed to have shared all of my experiences with my wife and my three kids, my family and friends. He was the victor of the 2013 Roberto Clemente Award, which honored both his leadership and his charitable and community contributions. Today, I am officially announcing my retirement. Following the final out of the "Fall Classic", he could be seen with tears running down his face. He is a nine-time All-Star and played for the Royals, Mets, Yankees, Cardinals, Astros, Rangers and Giants.

He finishes with a.279 average, 435 homers, 1,587 RBIs and 312 stolen bases.
