Auburn’s Tyler Beede Dominating College Baseball at Vanderbilt

Tuesday, June 04, 2013

 

Beede has been dominant on the mound for Vanderbilt this season.

Tyler Beede, a native of Auburn, Massachusetts, has been one of the most dominant pitchers in all of Division I college baseball this season at Vanderbilt University.

The 6'4” right-handed pitcher is now a sophomore and is turning heads everywhere he goes. Beede, who was heavily criticized for turning down a $2.5 million offer from the Toronto Blue Jays after being picked 21st overall in the 2011 MLB Draft, is proving that he may have done the right thing in going to Vanderbilt.

If Beede has another season like the one he's having this season, he should have no problem being one of the top picks in next year's draft. Beede leads all Division I pitchers in wins with an unblemished 14-0 record. His fourteen wins is a new single season record in the pitching record books at Vanderbilt. He's also recorded 101 strikeouts in 98.1 innings pitched to go along with a 2.20 earned run average.

A former All-American at Lawrence Academy, Beede has shown why he's considered to be so valuable by many scouts, leading the Commodores to a 53-10 record this season and a number one seed in one of the NCAA Regionals.

A Second Team All-SEC performer this season, Beede's success didn't come right away at Vanderbilt, drawing even more criticism from those who thought that he was dumb not to sign a contract worth $2.5 million. Although earning All-SEC Freshman Team last season, Beede struggled, compiling a 1-5 record with a 4.52 earned run average.

Not doubting his ability, Beede took last year as a learning experience and has come back as a force in Division I baseball. He recently started for the Commodores in a 10-4 regional victory over Illinois University.

Vanderbilt plays today against Georgia Tech in a winner-takes-all game to see who goes to the NCAA Super Regional.

No matter if Vanderbilt's season ends or not, it is safe to say that Beede has had one of the best college baseball seasons of any Worcester area player in recent memory.
