The Houston Astros Held a Funeral for Carlos Beltran’s Glove
The Houston Astros are 15.5 games ahead of the second place team in the AL west and they own the best record in the AL by 10 games. In fact, if it wasn't for the Dodgers out in Los Angeles the Astros would have the best record in baseball.
Playing on one of the best teams in the league generally means the club house is in pretty good spirits, even when a funeral takes place.
That's right, the Houston Astros buried Carlos Beltran's glove because he doesn't use it anymore. The 40 year old Beltran is used as the DH in the AL so there's no use for his glove that he used on route to 3 Gold Glove awards.
Beltran proved last night he doesn't need the glove to make an impact last night hitting a 2 run home run to tie the game for the Astros against the Seattle Mariners, though they ultimately lost the game 9-7.
Catcher Brian McCann, complete with a priestly garb, led the proceedings in what I'm sure was a moving eulogy.
