Auburn’s Tyler Beede Receives All-American Baseball Honors

Thursday, June 20, 2013

 

Tyler Beede was named Second Team All-American this past week.

Auburn-native and Vanderbilt University ace, Tyler Beede, has been named a Second Team All-American by Baseball America and Collegiate Baseball.

Beede, a sophomore, was tabbed an All-American after a season in which he led all of Division I in wins with 14. Beede has also been named one of three finalists for the Golden Spikes Award, which is handed out annually to the best amateur baseball player in the country. The Golden Spikes Award will be presented to the winner during a live presentation on July 19 on the MLB Network.

In addition to his 14-1 record, Beede had an earned run average of 2.32 in 2013, while striking out 103 batters in 101 innings pitched. He also had an eye-popping batting average against of .187 in his remarkable season.

Beede's decision to pass up $2.5 million from the Toronto Blue Jays after being selected 21st overall in the MLB Draft two years ago may pay dividends. Beede is set to be one of the top picks in next year's Draft after a season in which he set the single-season record at Vanderbilt for wins.

Beede's Vanderbilt club saw its season come to an end at the hands of Louisville University in the NCAA Super Regionals, defeating the Commodores 2-0 in a best-of-three series at Vanderbilt to clinch a spot in the College World Series.
