Default Gordon Beckham

I don't know how many people will remember this but, watching the Braves play the White Sox today, I noticed they had a player named Gordon Beckham. This immediately made me remember that USC had a starting QB in the early 80's named Gordon Beckham. After some research, I found out that he is indeed his son. Just think this is pretty cool.

That is his son , Gordon played ball at Westminster schools while I was working there on the athletic field staff. I had a lot of interaction with him during football and baseball season. I thought he was talented and would be decent but never would have said that's a future mlb player.

The White Sox like his potential but he has under performed recently. Though he is hitting .333 this season having played in 45 games, his first half was cut short due to a fracture in his right hamate bone

If my memory serves me correctly,we could have had him. He was interested but we took a kid from Charleston,( Reece Havens) at shortstop instead. Anybody know if Havens is still in baseball.

Yes, he is playing in Las Vegas for the Mets AAA team and is on the Mets 40 man roster. Pretty sure he has dealt with some injuries along the way.

Yep, looked it up and this article was written before last season about Havens. Injuries have hampered him a bit. http://www.nytimes.com/2012/03/11/sp...-injuries.html

Wow, didn't know we took Havens over Beckham. Both were great in college, Beckham was a beast. He was on one of the last decent UGA teams.

He never wanted to come to SC. He said he wanted to make his own way and not play where his dad did. Even though it was different sports.

Yea he made it very clear that he always wanted to go to UGA and really never wanted to go to USC at all. I think he committed to UGA in the 10th grade. I just remember every single time we played UGA they would bring up the fact that his dad was the QB for USC about fifty billion times.
