Podcast: An In-depth Look into Recruiting with Walter Beede

My guest today is Walter Beede, a very interesting guy, with a baseball career that spans over 40 years, as a player, a coach and a father. He attended Fitchburg high school in Massachusetts, where he was All-New England 1st Team as a high school player. He received a scholarship from Arizona State University and was selected by the Chicago Cubs as a 13th round draft pick in 1981.

His coaching background is lengthy and extensive. He has been a head coach at the high school, national travel and NCAA-College baseball levels. He has also worked as a task force member for the prestigious Team USA program in Cary NC.

As the father of two sons that played baseball and competed at the college level, Walter has been through the recruiting process plenty. One of his son’s, Tyler played for the National Champion Vanderbilt Commodores and is currently with the Pittsburgh Pirates.

All told, Walter has two decades of experience as a mentor to other young men, as a coach, a father, and a player himself. He brings an extremely diversified background for parents and student athletes who are seeking advice and want to play beyond the high school level. Through his Twitter feed Masters of Baseball, and his two recently published books, The Process and Fun over Fear, he serves as an invaluable resource for all.
