Beck pitching article

Beck has a scholarship to play baseball at Georgia Southern. He is asking for a $500,000 signing bonus, which may have scared teams away. Originally, he was slated to go between rounds seven and twelve. "Scouts love his size and his arm. He's got a great, very compact delivery, and they know if they draft him they won't have to work out a lot of kinks," says John Armitage, Beck's advisor. His fastball clocks between 90-91 mph, which is pretty outstanding for a high school arm. "If the number matches then more than likely I'll be going pro," Beck said. "I know in college there will be more memories to be made, that's why it's going to take a good amount of money to offset college." Source

In his senior season at Jefferson, the 6-foot-3 right-hander with a fastball that touches 90 miles per hour on the radar gun, went 8-2 with 118 strikeouts and a 0.68 ERA in 61 1/3 innings pitched. Scouts started flocking to Jefferson to witness his command of his fastball and curve ball, and most left impressed. "The big thing with Chris is his size," said Beck's advisor John Armitage, who said Beck is expected to be drafted in the seventh-12th round range. "Scouts love his size and his arm. He's got a great, very compact delivery, and they know if they draft him they won't have to work out a lot of kinks." Not only will the team get a quality pitcher, but it also get one that can handle pressure situations. "What I have is maturity," Beck said. "I obviously haven't stepped on a mound with more than 200 people in attendance, but I have composure and work ethic. You can't make it if you don't put in the work. Source
