Rangers to Honor Adrian Beltre Friday Night

The Texas Rangers will recognize one of the most historic individual accomplishments in franchise history on Friday night, when Adrian Beltre is honored for becoming just the 31st member of Major League Baseball's 3000-hit club.

The on-field ceremony will take place prior to the Rangers' 7:05 p.m. game with the New York Yankees at Globe Life Park in Arlington beginning at 6:20 p.m.

In addition, the Rangers today announced that commemorative baseballs will be used for batting practice and during Friday night's game. The baseballs contain a special logo recognizing Beltre's 3000 hit accomplishment, which took place on July 30 versus Baltimore, a fourth inning double off Wade Miley.

Beltre will receive special honors during the ceremony including a proclamation from the City of Arlington and an award from his native Dominican Republic. There will be several presentations from the Rangers, videos of congratulations from a number of Hall of Famers and other noted players, and a highlight video narrated by Bob Costas.

Speakers will include former teammate and Rangers Hall of Famer Michael Young and manager Jeff Banister with Rangers Hall of Fame radio voice Eric Nadel serving as master of ceremonies. Prior to the ceremony, the Dominican Republic National Anthem will be performed by Mao Cano, Vice President of the Dominican Cultural Association of DFW.

Fans attending Friday's game will receive a 3" by 5" Adrian Beltre 3,000 Hit Commemorative Baseball Card.

Limited edition Adrian Beltre 3K caps are available through a special ticket offer for Friday and Saturday's games. Fans who purchase their tickets for either game via www.texasrangers.com/beltre3k will receive a voucher that can be redeemed for the hat. Cap distribution will take place both days on the third base concourse from the time gates open until the conclusion of the 3rd inning. For fans who have already purchased tickets, 500 caps will be available at the Texas Rangers Foundation kiosk (3rd base concourse by section 14) for a $15 donation to the foundation.

The first 15,000 fans through the gates for the 12:05 p.m. Rangers-Yankees game on Saturday will receive a Rangers On-Deck Circle Mousepad presented by EST Group and Dell EMC.

Tickets for all remaining 2017 home games can be purchased at texasrangers.com, by calling 972.RANGERS, and at the Globe Life Park in Arlington ticket office.
