“Three things tell a man: his eyes, his friends and his favorite quotes.”
Carlos Ivan Beltrán is a Major League Baseball outfielder with the New York Mets. Beltran currently has the highest stolen base percentage amongst active players with 250 or more steals.
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.
