The Houston Astros Held Funeral For Carlos Beltran’s Outfield Glove
It’s been quite a while since Carlos Beltran has played in the outfield for the Houston Astros. This fact wasn’t lost on his teammates, who decided to have some fun at his expense.
On Monday, the players on the team took to the outfield—somewhere Beltran hasn’t played in over two months—and held an impromptu funeral for his outfield glove.

George Springer and Ken Giles reportedly purchased multiple tombstones, while Josh Reddick carried the glove out in a shoebox, and catcher Brian McCann served as the priest presiding over the funeral.

With a record of 62-30 and a commanding lead in the American League West, it’s safe to say the Astros really don’t need Beltran out there at all.
