    I had a chance to see Tim Beckham play when Bowling Green was in Kannapolis this weekend. The most telling play from him on Friday didn't show up on the stat sheet. There was a tricky shot to short that skipped off the dirt. He protected the ball in front of him, caught it around his chest and bobbled it up in the air, but kept his cool and thew out the runner. Many A-Ball players would have rushed and thrown that ball away, or given up on the play all together when the ball was bobbled. He's got a good stroke, and speed that kills. (I was hoping to get pictures to share, but work held me up and I didn't get there in time to get good shots with my crappy point-and-click.)
