I am a long time Rangers fan and my favorite player of all time is Rangers 3rd baseman Adrian Beltre. Always has a smile on his face and has more fun playing baseball than anyone ever on the planet. Today was possibly his last game. He’s 39 years old and has had some tough injuries the last couple of years. He has not said he’s retiring for sure but all of the interviews seem to be pointing there. I saw one interview today, have read several on Twitter and I have cried every time. It’s irrational. I don’t even know the man. But I know that the Rangers and 3rd base will never again be the same. If I could same something to him, I’d thank him for giving me joy every time I watched him play. And I’d tip my hat right back if I had one. I may have to wear my Beltre jersey this week.
Update: On November 20, he made his retirement official. Happy for him, heartbroken for us. #ThanksAB!!
