Elvis Andrus touched Adrian Beltre’s head, and that’s a no-no (GIF)


Elvis-Andrus-touches-Adrian-Beltre-headAdrian Beltre is a strange guy. Like many other professional baseball players, he has a number of quirks and superstitions. But more than anything else, Beltre hates being touched on his head.

The Rangers third baseman has a history of lashing out at teammates who dare to touch his dome, and shortstop Elvis Andrus was feeling bold during a mound conference on Saturday night. Andrus touched Beltre’s head just as the discussion was breaking up, and Beltre reacted accordingly by humming his glove at Andrus in anger.

These two have developed quite the relationship. Between the head touching and Beltre giving Andrus the death stare earlier this month on a pop fly, it seems like they have an older brother-annoying little brother relationship. It certainly looks like Andrus has a lot of fun with it.
