Adrian Beltre Retires After 21 Seasons Texas Rangers third baseman and longtime fan favorite Adrian Beltre, who appears to be a lock for future induction into the Hall of Fame, announced his retirement from baseball on Nov. 20, 2018. "After careful consideration and many sleepless nights, I have made the decision to retire from what I've been doing my whole life, which is playing baseball, the game I love," Beltre said. Beltre just finished his 21st season in the Major Leagues and his eighth with the Rangers. Beltre finished his career having played in 2,933 games, the 14th most in Major League history. That is just one of many categories in which he ranks among the all-time greats. He is also 16th with 3,166 career hits, 24th with 1,707 RBIs and 30th with 477 home runs. 16 Other highlights of the 2019 Texas Rangers Fan Fest Presented by Dasani: • Interactive Question & Answer sessions with Rangers executives, players and announcers in the All You Can Eat Porch • Behind-the-scenes look and informational sessions of the construction at Globe Life Field • Whiffle ballpark and inflatables on the concourse • Free tours of the Rangers clubhouse and dugout • Free play in the Rangers Kids Zone and autographs by Rangers Captain • Rangers Baseball Foundation Sale • Food and beverages on sale at The Short Stop Grill, The Chipper, Rebecca Creek Saloon and other Ballpark concession stands • Merchandise on sale at the Grand Slam Gift Shop in centerfield and Pro Shop at Home Plate. • Free access to the batting cages
