Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre does not like having his cabeza cuffed, rubbed or touched in any way shape or form. Never has, never will. This didn’t prevent Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera from handling the Dominican’s head after he collected his 2,500 hit.
This isn’t Cabrera’s first infraction against Beltre’s no-touch zone. A month ago, Cabrera took the opportunity to pester Beltre while visiting third base.
Before you get the impression that Beltre is a humorless hot head, take a look at a retrospective of his hijinks with Rangers shortstop Elvis Andrus.
