Adrián Beltré is in the final part of his career in what is the final year of his contract with the Texas Rangers and with a with a Hall of Famer career, Adrián Beltré undoubtedly has many moments to remember in his career in the Major Leagues.

And now, with Beltré is back to the Dodger Stadium with the Rangers, which is the place where he spent the first seven seasons of his career.


The Dominican has very special memories of his time with the Dodgers, according to Andy McCullough of the LA Times, as when on every turn at bat the whole stadium chanted 'M-V-P'.

I will never forget that. I will never forget that because when you come to the plate and hear those chants, that is so nice. They were great fans. They were great to me


Beltre had the desire to be Dodger for the rest of his career and thought he would do it after the best season of his career hitting .334 with 48 homers and 121 RBIs. But this was his final season in the team and Beltre is clear about what the problem was:

I think it was more the GM than anything. It was a mistake on my part to show it too much, that I wanted to stay back then. They wanted to use that against me in the negotiation.
