He was one of the best players on the best team in the Cape -- Gordon Beckham. The Y-D Red Sox slugger and CCBL All-Star as well as Home Run King made a name for himself last summer. Beckham is making headlines again during this spring's major college baseball season. Sports Illustrated profiled him this past week. According to SI:
The Bulldogs struggled last season, but Beckham improved as a sophomore, hitting .307 with 13 homers and 51 RBIs. He then provided a peek at what was to come this year when he led the Cape Cod League with nine homers and tied for the lead with 35 RBIs last summer while leading Yarmouth-Dennis to the championship.
"I went up there and said the same thing I did coming into this season, that I was going to go up there and have fun and whatever happens, happens,'' Beckham said. "I think that's been paying off for me.''
