A longtime MLB All-Star has decided to call it a career.

The four-time MLB All-Star and five-time Gold Glove Award winner has been one of the best players in the game for more than a decade.

Beltre, a Dominican Republic native, played for the Dodgers, Mariners, Red Sox and Rangers.

Beltre, a future Hall of Famer, released the following statement:

Congrats on a heck of a career, Adrian.
