Adrian Beltre collecting 3000th hit for 25th among top MLB plays of 2017

He was a Dodger first, our own phenom who was starting for the Dodgers at age 19 and the one we let get away after 2004. Many years later, Adrian Beltre does something very few 3rd baseman have ever done, collecting his 3000th hit.

This future HOF will stand tall with the greatest third baseman in baseball history and still holds one of the greatest seasons in Dodger history back in 2004 when he assaulted pitchers like Van Helsing going after vampires.
