Matt Quatraro And Jeremy Beckham On Tim Beckham

Tim BeckhamBowling Green Hot Rods Manager Matt Quatraro and 2B Jeremy Beckham had this to say about SS Tim Beckham:
"I think he’s going to be a special player," Quatraro said. "He’s got tools that you see right away. He’s got lightning-quick hands and a lot of pop in his bat. He’s got a good arm. He’s got everything you would expect to see out of a No. 1 draft pick."
"My brother deals with that pressure [#1 overall pick] as well as any other kid in the country," Jeremy Beckham said. "He’s so resilient in doing that. People ask me all the time, 'Well what do you say to him to keep him grounded?' I really don’t have to say a whole lot. His personality pretty much takes care of it. He’s really grounded, really level-headed. That really amazed me because I didn’t know how he would take it."

Still, Jeremy Beckham seems to know almost everything else about his brother’s baseball life. From their earliest days playing backyard ball all the way up to the minor leagues, the Beckham brothers - who plan to live together in Bowling Green - have relied on each other. The Beckhams know each other’s tendencies, remain sharply competitive and love talking about the adjustments they must make at the professional level.
