There Goes Beckham

No, not David…

USC Baseball takes another hit. This kid is real good player, it’s a shame that we couldn’t keep him. From MLB.com

Tim Beckham is No. 1.

The Rays, holding the first overall selection in Thursday's First-Year Player Draft, selected the talented high school shortstop from Griffin, Ga.

[…]Beckham has signed a baseball scholarship to Southern California but wants to play professional baseball. The Rays would like to get him signed as soon as possible and into their system so he can progress as rapidly as possible to the Major Leagues.

I give Chad Kreuter credit for going after top talent but this is the second year in a row that SC has lost a top recruit to MLB. I sure hope he has a back up plan and some other quality players coming in.
