After 20 seasons, Carlos Beltrán is walking away from Major League Baseball. And my goodness, what a career it has been.
20 years, 7 teams, 9 All-Star appearances, and finally … one World Series ring.

Seven seasons with the Kansas City Royals. Seven seasons with the New York Mets. Three seasons with the New York Yankees. Four more between St. Louis and Houston—the latter of which produced his only World Series championship. And, parts of one season between Texas and San Francisco.
But after 20 seasons in the majors, it’s time. Moreover, as he approaches his 41st birthday, it’s time.
Of course, now there’s always the question of what’s next. But for Beltrán, one thing must be certain—the Hall of Fame beckons.
