Houston Astros outfielder Carlos Beltran is retiring on top.

Beltran, who helped the Astros win the World Series this season, announced his retirement Monday in a post on The Players’ Tribune:

“I am blessed to have played this game for 20 years. I am blessed to have played for so many great organizations. I am blessed to have shared all of my experiences with my wife and my three kids, my family and friends. To have so many loving fans. To have been able to build a school in Puerto Rico and change the lives of so many kids. To have won the Roberto Clemente Award, which is the greatest honor I could have ever received as a ballplayer. And I am blessed to be a champion.

But now, my time as a player has come to an end. Today, I am officially announcing my retirement. Muchas gracias, béisbol. I can’t wait for what the next chapter holds.”

Beltran hit .231 with 14 homers and 51 RBI in 129 games for Houston this season.

Beltran may be discussed as a candidate for the New York Yankees managerial position.
