Beck On Winning Federation Team

Eric Beck, Archbold, was a member of Young Guns, the team that won the David Betts Federation Baseball League championship Sunday, Aug. 12.

The Young Guns defeated the Rebels 15-5 in the final game.

The league was renamed the David Betts Federation League in honor of the players from Bluffton College, who were killed in a March 2 bus crash in Atlanta, Ga.

Betts, from Bryan, and Zack Arend, Oakwood, who were among the five players killed in the crash, had played in the Federation League. Betts was the league’s 2006 batting champion.

“They were outstanding young guys,” said David Rasey, a league official.

“We want to create a living memorial” to the Bluffton players.
