Wiki

Carlos Ivan Beltrán (Spanish pronunciation: ; born April 24, 1977 in Manatí, Puerto Rico) is a Major League Baseball outfielder with the San Francisco Giants.

In his youth, Beltrán excelled in many sports, with volleyball and baseball being his favorites. At his father's urging, he gave up volleyball to concentrate on baseball when he was seventeen. Graduating from Fernando Callejo High School in 1995, the highly-regarded five tool player was selected by the Kansas City Royals in the second round of that year's amateur baseball draft.

After selecting Beltrán in the 1995 draft, the Kansas City Royals assigned him to their rookie-level team in the Gulf Coast League, The Wilmington Blue Rocks of Wilmington Delaware. Beltrán made his Major League debut on September 14, 1998, playing 15 games. Going into 1999, he won the job as the Royals' starting center fielder and leadoff hitter. He displayed significant power by midsummer, and was moved to the #3 slot in the batting order. Beltrán won the American League Rookie of the Year award, batting .293 with 22 home runs, 108 RBI and 27 stolen bases. On September 27, 1999, Beltran made the final out at Tiger Stadium striking out against relief pitcher Todd Jones as the Detroit Tigers beat the Royals 8–2.
