SURPRISE, Ariz.- Adrian Beltre is the third baseman for the Rangers, and will be seen wearing the number 29 on the field. He is the talk of the Rangers this year. His hitting is incredible considering he is close to 3,000 hits.
Little did he know when he started with the L.A. Dodgers in 1998 that he would possibly make history one day.
Hitting 3,000 hits in a career is a tremendous accomplishment considering only 30 other players in MLB history have achieved this. Beltre has a total of 445 home runs, and has a batting average of .286. He is 37 years old, and age does not seem to stop his swing.
His contract lasts until 2018. Unless he is offered another contract, or does not retire, this season will most likely be one of his lasts.
