Don’t touch his head

Adrian Beltre was one of the most respected athletes of his time, throughout the league and into other sports.

He took his craft seriously, but also had the time of his life playing the game.

Like the on-deck circle incident, Adrian Beltre had his fair share of moments that made any baseball fan chuckle

From his outstanding relationship with fellow legends Felix Hernandez and Miguel Cabrera, to his brotherhood and mentorship of current Ranger Elvis Andrus, A.B. loved to have fun.

Many might remember when he ran up the left field line in Houston to avoid being tagged out in a rundown, playing “tag” on second base with any and all who would join, and so many more memories where he just wanted to have fun.’

For Texas Ranger fans, we fondly remember his dancing in the batter’s box and him rubbing his back pocket after getting hit with a Felix Hernandez breaking ball.

But more often than not, his antics with shortstop Elvis Andrus were the most memorable.

From calling and miscalling pop-ups to coaching Elvis after not running out a double, which looked to be gone, their relationship may go down as one of the best baseball brotherhoods in history.

AND REMEMBER, DO NOT TOUCH BELTRE’S HEAD.
