Luke Beckstein- Varsity Baseball

Luke was one of the catalysts of our offense against St. Mark’s; he was our first hitter to reach base in the fourth inning via a hit by pitch, then laced an RBI single and a leadoff double in his last two at bats, coming around to score both times.  He was at the heart of an excellent defensive effort, calmly fielding a hard hit one hopper to end St. Mark’s first good scoring opportunity, then starting a double play to end their next one.  This was emblematic of his play at shortstop all season long, as he has been unfailingly reliable at one of the hardest and busiest defensive positions on the field.  Luke’s focus and hard work this season have set a great example for his teammates. -Coach DiSarcina, Coach Cheeks, & Coach Bannard
