Adrian Beltre retires

He should definitely have a spot in Cooperstown!


The native of the Dominican Republic is a strong candidate to make the Hall of Fame. His 3,166 hits rank 16th all time and are the most among foreign-born players, as he passed Ichiro Suzuki for that distinction this past season. Beltre is a four-time All-Star selection, winning six Gold Gloves and four Silver Sluggers while also compiling 477 home runs, 1,707 RBIs and a career .286 batting average.

He has never won a World Series ring.

At the end of the 2018 season, he ranked first among all active players in hits, games played (2,933, 14th all time), at-bats (11,068, eighth all time) and plate appearances (12,130). He was second among active players in home runs, RBIs, WAR (95.7, 38th all time), runs scored (1,524, 64th), doubles (636, 11th), total bases (5,309, 14th) and extra-base hits (1,151, 14th).
