Oh, you don’t know? We got you.
Adrian Beltre may be 37, but boy can the man still swing with the best of them. On Monday night against the Oakland Athletics, Beltre swatted a 96 mph fastball into the night for a two-run, walk-off home run.

Adrian Beltre is the oldest player in franchise history with a walkoff HR.

With that win, the Rangers hold a 3 1/2-game lead over the Houston Astros in the American League West. They’ll depend on Beltre’s bat during their push toward the postseason, as he leads the team in RBIs. The problem is, when you hit walk-off home runs, teammates start tapping you on the head to celebrate.
And Beltre does NOT like this.
I interrupt tonight's political Twitter timeline to show so much touching of Adrian Beltre's head (he's in there) pic.twitter.com/AGd1JiKFsX

Adrian Beltre would prefer if you PLEASE didn't touch his head.
