About

Jeffrey Beckmann enjoys writing about sports just as much as he enjoys writing in the third-person—a trait in which the Sergeant mastered during a four-year stint in the United States Marine Corps (2002-06).

Although Mr. Beckmann now works in the accounting/finance field by day, he longs for the moment he's able to step out of the office scene for good to be a full-time writer. It is his true passion.

Jeffrey laughs at everything, while his wife tells him daily he has some growing up to do. He enjoys incorporating some of his attempts at humor in his articles.

Mr. Beckmann is also fascinated by MLB history. He claims that the reason he is so good at numbers is from analyzing the baseball section of the sports page every day as a tot.

Jeffrey and his smokin' hot wife currently reside in the Nashville-area. Boogadi Boogadi.

If you have any questions, send Jeffrey a message and he will be more than happy to help you out. He thanks you all for your support.

God Bless America

    Jeff, .I enjoy reading about baseball, but when I see the WS star come for St. Louis CC. I wonder how the scouts miss great players. Hitters are born and I have been searching and watching youtube videos. Google Jack Bernacchi He is a 2012 prospect with some great videos on line.

    Jeez, 163,000 reads with 13 days to go in the month. You're a beast, maybe save some reads for the rest of us.

    Hey, would you be able to send your e mail to klangan@omnipossible.com? I want to get the B/R community leaders on a mailing list for a press release on behalf of Sports Media 101.

    Thanks

    Merkle was neither brain-dead nor at fault. Everyone broke off his run before the next base on a game-ending play back then. There was no crowd control, and many of the fans were drunk, abusive and sat right on the perimeter of the field. The umps assumed the advance to the next base, and they and the players got the heck outa there. That game's ump decided all on own, with no forewarning whatsoever to Merkle, that he would go the rule. Merkle was an extreme victim of wrong place, wrong time. In fact, one of the smartest players ever. To get the full context, read my book: "Public Bonehead, Private Hero: The Real Legacy of Baseball's Fred Merkle." Hope you learn and enjoy.

    I cannot imagine, and have not seen a better baseball movie than Pride of the Yanks. I really like Bad News Bears, and several of the other ones, but to put Bull Dunham, and The Natural ahead of the Pride.....is ridiculous.....

    You make some solid observations. However, I disagree about Adrian Beltre and Derek Jeter.

    I've never read or heard a negative thing about the Beltre. He wants to succeed (solid stats) and he wants to help his team win. Teammates and fans alike loved Adrian when he was a Mariner. Not wanting your head rubbed or slapped for good luck doesn't make a guy selfish.

    Any team in the leage would take Jeter in heartbeat. He is the ultimate team captain. He is the epitome of consistency with defense and offense.

    However, you failed to mention (gulp!) Ichiro. Yes, good old slap-happy-hitting Ichiro is in the top five of most selfish MLB players. MEchiro guy has batted lead off since 2001. He's more obsessed with getting a 200-hit season than taking pitches for his fellow hitters in the lineup or trying to get a walk.

    Jeff that was a good article on the Boston Pitching. They really took a hit(pardon the pun) against the Rangers!
