Carlos Beltran Announces Retirement

on

Former Mets’ great Carlos Beltran announced his retirement on Monday, according to Mark Feinsand of MLB.com.

In his Mets’ career, Beltran hit 149 homers, drove in 559 RBI and batting .280 with a .369 on base percentage. His best year came in 2006, when he had 41 homers and 116 RBI. He also stole an even 100 bases as a Met, and he was only caught 16 times.

If he’s considered for the Hall of Fame, he could go in wearing a Mets’ cap, as he played more games in orange and blue than anywhere else.

Here’s a tribute video from YouTube. Thank you Carlos.

    Great article… He could flag a fly ball like none other, while the Wright, Beltran, Delgado lineup was one I’ll never forget. Great memories.
