If there’s ever been a bigger day for the Texas Rangers franchise, it would be hard to find it. Maybe a World Series championship could top it, but that might be the only thing.
Sunday, Pudge Rodriguez was inducted into the Major League Baseball Hall of Fame – while future Hall of Famer Adrian Beltre collected his 3,000th hit.
If you missed any of it, we’ve put all of Sunday’s great moments in one place – from Pudge’s emotional speech to Beltre’s children running to the outfield to unveil a special sign saluting the team’s 3rd baseman. Enjoy.
Up next, number 3,000 itself.
Even the Fort Worth Zoo said it named its new baby giraffe, Beltre.
And the a summary of Pudge’s special day in Cooperstown, from the Dallas Morning News.
And finally, Rodriguez’ passionate induction speech.
