MOUNT VERNON (KLTV) -

The Texas Rangers have a big fan in a tiny little girl from East Texas.

5-year-old Cambree Summerlin, of Mount Vernon, could not control her emotions when she witnessed Adrian Beltre get his 3,000th hit.

Cambree's mom Crystal posted the video while the family attended the game Sunday saying "When you're so proud of #Beltre that you can't hold those emotions back! #Beltrehits3000 #soproudyoucry #TexasRangersFan.

KLTV reached out to Cambree today to talk to her about her video that now has more than 3 thousand views.

Cambree says Beltre is her favorite player "because he gets home-runs."

When asked why Beltre's new record brought her to tears, she replied "I was proud for him. It's a lot of hard work."

The family says they watch the games on TV and like to go to the games too. 

In Cambree's words, "We're a big fan!"

Beltre is the first player from the Dominican Republic to reach the milestone and 31st major leaguer overall.

The 38-year-old Texas Rangers third baseman made history with his double down the left-field line on a 3-0 pitch in the fourth inning Sunday against Baltimore lefty Wade Miley. Beltre struck out swinging in his first at-bat of the game.

Beltre is in his 20th big league season.

Getting 3,000 hits has traditionally been a ticket to the Hall of Fame. The only other currently active player in the 3,000-hit club is Miami Marlins outfielder Ichiro Suzuki, who began the day tied with Hall of Fame player Craig Biggio for 22nd all-time at 3,060.
