He also was honored with a Fielding Bible Award for being the top MLB defensive third baseman during the year.The 2007 season was not one of Beltré's better defensive years statistically.At the end of the 1998 season, Beltré finished with 13 errors at third base while batting .215 with seven home runs.At one point in the spring training prior to the start of the 1999 season, Beltré's agent, Scott Boras, commented to him that "he couldn't believe" his relatively rapid ascent to the majors and handling of "such a difficult position like third base" at age 20. Boras then realized that his date of birth in the Dodgers' records was incorrect and indicated the same to the team, but, that if they were to correct the mistake by compensating Beltré for signing him at younger than MLB's allowable age, they would no longer pursue the issue.In 2004, Beltré had a breakout season in which he established a number of career highs, including leading MLB with 48 home runs.
At the time, he was the youngest player in the National League (NL).In his first game after returning from the DL, teammate Ken Griffey Jr.conspired with those responsible for the Safeco Field public address system to have Beltré's at-bat intro music be the opening march from The Nutcracker Suite. Beltré led the Majors in doubles, with 49 (also a career high).Beltré led the Red Sox in batting average (.321) in 2010 and tied David Ortiz for the team lead in RBIs (102). He also finished fourth in the AL in batting average, and was fifth in the AL in total bases (326) and slugging percentage (.553).He also had two stolen bases on the year, and finished ninth in the MVP voting.
