Adrian Beltre does not like it when people come into his territory when he is calling for a fly ball. If you didn’t know that prior to the Texas Rangers’ game against the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday night, you do now.
As you can see from the GIF above that was posted on Reddit, Beltre was camped under a pop fly when shortstop Elvis Andrus came drifting over and looked like he was thinking about making the play. Beltre waved his arms like a madman and told Andrus to get the hell out of there. After Beltre secured the ball, he gave his teammate the death stare.
It looked like Andrus was smiling as he jogged away, but Beltre didn’t appear to be messing around. The two players were able to avoid a collision, but that wasn’t enough for Adrian. Next time, Elvis better stay out of his wheelhouse and let him do his thing.
