If you love yourself some Adrian Beltre, it’s a can’t-miss weekend at Globe Life Park.
A ceremony begins at 6:20 p.m. before Game 1 at 7:05 p.m. Friday night in which Beltre will receive a proclamation from the City of Arlington, multiple presentations from the Rangers and manager Jeff Banister, videos of congratulations from Hall of Famers and noted players and a highlight video narrated by Bob Costas.
The Rangers and Yankees will use commemorative baseball during batting practice and Friday’s game. The balls will have a special logo recognizing Beltre’s accomplishment.
Beltre became the 31st player to join the 3,000th-hit club on July 30.
