In best promotion ever, #Rangers giving away miniature on-deck circles to honor Adrian Beltre: https://t.co/9pzL8ZfRI9

Texas Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre was booted from a game in July because umpire Gerry Davis didn't like where the 38-year-old was standing while on deck and waiting for his at-bat. When Davis told Beltre to move to the on-deck circle, Beltre instead dragged the circle to where he was standing, and Davis ejected him. 

The Rangers plan to commemorate that moment with a unique giveaway. 

As explained by Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News, the Rangers will offer miniature "on-deck circle" mouse pads to the first 15,000 fans who make it to Globe Life Park in Arlington ahead of the team's contest versus the New York Yankees on September 9. 

The promotion is part of a two-day celebration of Beltre, who reached 3,000 career hits a few days after his infamous ejection. 

No word on if Davis will receive a mouse pad of his own from the club.
