Beltran had come close many times before, having lost with the St. Louis Cardinals in 2013 and falling short in three other LCS appearances. While he wasn’t a huge contributor to the team on the field, he was a key veteran leader on a fairly young team of stars. He may be on his way to the Hall of Fame, and now he has a World Series ring to polish off his resume.
