Adrian Beltre, Chuck Morgan to be inducted into Texas Rangers Baseball Hall of Fame

“For me it’s all about them,” Morgan, who now also carries the title of Executive Vice President for Ballpark Entertainment, Promotions and Productions, said of the fans. “I’m representing the fan here. I’m like anybody else here. I’m a baseball fan and have been for a long time, I can’t remember when I wasn’t. I care about their experience. Hopefully we have succeeded in doing that to the best of our ability. It’s important to me. There’s nothing better in my job now than getting to shake hundreds of fans’ hands in my booth every night. I share this with all Rangers fans.”

Beltré played the final eight seasons of his 21-year career with the Rangers, going over 3,000 hits in 2017 before retiring after the 2018 season. He joined the Rangers in 2011 and went to the World Series as well as three other trips to the postseason. He was named the team’s Player of the Year four times, won three Gold Gloves and a pair of Silver Sluggers. And, in case you weren’t aware, he became kind of popular as a lovable grump and big brother to Andrus.

They will become the 23rd and 24th members of the Hall of Fame, which was established in 2003. Over the last five years, though, there have been only two members enshrined: Former Arlington mayor Richard Greene and Josh Hamilton.
