Adrian Beltre spun around like a cartoon character, then hit a dinger off one knee

I was told this sequence existed before I saw it. It was described accurately, and I didn't think it would be a big deal.

Oh, Adrian Beltre. Why do I underestimate you?

Mike Trout is exciting, and Giancarlo Stanton can hit baseballs 780 feet, but how many baseball players will swing like that, hit a homer off one knee, and then punch you if you touch their head?

Just one. And he is a treasure.
