The Adrian Beltre experience

I finally discovered how to embed gifs on the blog. So here’s a gif-tastic post on one of my favorite players, Adrian Beltre.

Beltre is a good baseball hitter. He’s actually gotten better with age and is close to Hall of Fame territory. I wrote a long apology to him last year that, I’m guessing, fell on deaf ears.

He has one of the best home run swings in the game. Look at it! He falls to one leg.

The guy plays elite defense. He’s won 4 Gold Gloves and has a 23.2 career dWAR.

He also does this weird thing where he appeals to first base on check swings. It makes no sense! He’s the only player I’ve ever seen do this.

One time he ran into left field to avoid a tag.

But my favorite thing about Beltre isn’t his swing, or his fielding, or his weird appeal to first. No, the best part is that he is afraid of anyone touching his head.

Like, he really doesn’t like it.

Now all of his teammates do it.

Elvis Andrus is the main culprit. He messes with Beltre any chance he gets. Even in the middle of plays!

Beltre is always watching. Don’t get too close.

He will throw equipment at you.

Opposing players do it too.

Here’s what happened when Beltre recorded his 2,500th career hit.

Not every attempt works, though.

This was Beltre last week. Batters now have to keep one foot in the box between pitches. He forgot.

Adrian Beltre is the best.
