Carlos Beltran Announces Retirement After 20-Year Career, First World Series Win

Carlos Beltran Announces Retirement After 20-Year Career, First World Series Win”

Most fans knew this news would be coming, and on Monday it became official: after 20 years in the big leagues, outfielder and designated hitter Carlos Beltran is hanging it up and retiring from the game. And I am blessed to be a champion. The World Series victory, however, caps a career in which he's pretty much done it all, so it's not at all surprising that he's calling it quits.

"When the family came to Houston for the summer, I told Jessica, 'This will be my last year for sure.' I couldn't be away from my family for such a long time anymore". He also posted strong career postseason numbers, with a.307 batting average, 16 home runs and 42 RBIs. How to motivate them, how to impact them in a way where they continue to improve. And it's one that Beltran was ready for. As George Springer struggled through the American League Championship Series, he relied on Beltran's advice to help him stay focused.

Finishing his career with a second, one-year, stint in Houston, Beltran captured his first World Series title. "Muchas gracias, béisbol. I can't wait for what the next chapter holds". And, indeed, he may not immediately attract a lot of Hall of Fame attention when he appears on the ballot in a little over five years. It was a different role, but I really enjoyed it. "It's something we'll remember for the rest of our lives". He finished his career with 435 homers and 1,587 RBIs. He admits that falling short of some milestones - 3,000 hits, in particular - is disappointing, but he feels comfortable that he took full advantage of his talent during stops with the Royals, Astros, Mets, Giants, Cardinals, Yankees and Rangers.
