Arlington, Tex. – Dominican Republic slugger Adrian Beltre on Sunday got his 3,000th career hit with a vicious line drive past third base.

The Texas Rangers third baseman, 38, doubled to become the first player from the Dominican Republic, and 31st overall, to join the 3,000-hit club in the major leagues.

“I know this baseball game is not going to be forever, so I try to do the best I can to be productive every day,” Beltre told WFAA-TV. “I like challenges, I like competition. I always think there’s nothing I can’t do.”
