BELTRE BLASTS #400


May 16,2015

Last night Rangers Third-baseman ADRIAN BELTRE joined the 400 home-run club. Beltre remained humble in the post game interview when asked about his milestone, he stated that he was more concerned that the Rangers fell to the Indians 8-3 at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington.

 Beltre becomes just the fourth third-baseman to hit 400 (with more than 75% of games at third base), joining hall of famers MIKE SCHMIDT, EDDIE MATTHEWS and future Hall of Famer CHIPPER JONES. He is currently fourth among active players, only behind ALEX RODRIGUEZ, ALBERT PUJOLS and DAVID ORTIZ.
