Griffin High short stop Tim Beckham has become the first player selected in today's Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft.
The 6-2, 190-pounder will be selected by the Tampa Bay Rays.
"(He's a) middle of the field player, very good athlete, an advanced bat," Rays scouring director R.J. Harrison told MLB.com. "(He) has a real good awareness on the field. He plays the game with a great deal of enthusiasm. And then when you spend time with him away from the field, he's the same guy. He's a fun guy to be around."
