Beltre in the Not Top 10

beltre08.JPGFormer LumberKing Engel Beltre (’08) has made the Sportscenter highlight reel in a somewhat less-than-desireable way as his walk-off homer-turned-bench clearing brawl has shown up as #1 on the “Not Top 10” this week.

Beltre hit a walk-off solo homer for Bakersfield (high-A, Texas Rangers) in a 2-1 win in 10 innings over the Visalia Rawhide.  Engel being Engel, he had a few words to say as he rounded the bases that, needless to say, were not well-received by the Rawhide players.

Watch the video here:

Not exactly good exposure for Beltre, one of the up-and-coming prospects in the Rangers system, but if the video is now on ESPN, maybe that means we can all laugh about it just a little bit.  Unless you’re from Visalia.
