Angels-Rangers Preview

Adrian Beltre has been instrumental to the Texas Rangers' recent success and that could lead to their first AL West title in four years. It may also further damage the Los Angeles Angels' playoff hopes. Beltre looks to continue his hot hitting as the Rangers attempt to close in on the division crown Thursday night against the Angels in the opener of this season-ending series with...

Adrian Beltre on Hitting

There is no one single way to be good at baseball, which is part of why it’s so amazing. Just last week we peeked into the mind of a man with one of the lowest swing rates in baseball when we asked Joey Votto how he does it. And this week? Let’s ask Adrian Beltre. “I’m probably the opposite,” Beltre laughed when he heard Votto’s name. “I’m thinking swing first and...

Elvis Andrus, Adrian Beltre Remain Conspicuously Delightful

Besides the fact that they’re natives of Latin America and play baseball and haven’t died ever, Elvis Andrus and Adrian Beltre are basically carbon copies of mid-century comedy duo Burns and Allen. What the footage here — from, like, five minutes ago — what the footage here reveals is another installment in their ongoing series of amusing scenarios. In this particular case...

Felix Hernandez, Adrian Beltre have some words after flyout (video)

Felix Hernandez and Adrian Beltre are MLB veterans and they don’t shy away from on-field banter. But they have fun when doing so. When the Mariners and Rangers squared off on Thursday afternoon, Beltre had some words for Hernandez after a flyout. King Felix played right back, and basically told him to go back to the dugout. It’s hard to figure out exactly what Beltre said, but...

Texas Rangers Torture Adrian Beltre With Massive Head Rubbing Celebration After Walk-Off Win

There is an old saying about celebration that goes something like this: Don't do anything great if you can't handle the congratulations. That is kind of a problem for Texas Rangers slugger Adrian Beltre. He is kind of prone to making big plays and being the center of attention during celebrations. There is only one problem--he hates the team's preferred celebration whenever he does...

Adrian Beltre’s case for Cooperstown is rock solid

On Monday, following Adrian Beltre’s home run in the fifth inning that completed the cycle, his home run trot would suggest he had done it before. That’s because he had. Indeed, last night was the third cycle Beltre had hit during his 18-year big league career, only the 4th player in history to hit that mark. Beltre continues to impress consistently and quietly with his play...

Rangers’ Adrian Beltre Hits For Third Career Cycle, Ties MLB Record (Video)

ARLINGTON, Texas — Adrian Beltre came to bat in the fifth inning looking for a pitch he could hit over the wall. He got one for an impressive modern-day record.

Adrian Beltre completes cycle, gets mad when assaulted

Adrian Beltre became just the fourth player in baseball history to hit three cycles in his career on Monday night – and he completed his cycle in the fifth inning with a home run off of new Astros pitcher Mike Fiers. After homering, his teammates (and *especially* Elvis Andrus, as usual) removed his helmet and mauled poor Beltre’s head. Beltre’s reaction here is amazing...
