Matthew Beaton Gains Scholarship To Eastern Michigan University
Submitted By Dan Thompson on Sunday, July 15, 2012
Matthew Beaton has been one of the Terriers top performing pitchers for the past two years. Matt has worked hard to consistently increase his velocity and polish his secondary pitches to the point where he had impressed several college recruiters over the past six months. He committed to the NCAA D1 Eastern Michigan Eagles this week. The Eagles compete in the Mid America Conference (MAC) and play a very aggressive D1 baseball schedule.

This past spring saw them visit Kentucky, Duke, Wake Forest, and eventual College World Series Champions, Arizona. MAC Conference competition includes Kent State, Bowling Green, Ohio, Ball State, Miami (OH) and Northern Illinois. Beaton was a major cog in the Terriers march to the 17u Sandlott Baseball World Series Championship last summer. He pitched three times in that tournament, including being called in from the bullpen in the semi final to snuff out a rally. Matt exhibits excellent mound presence and is a very mature, good natured young man who is very deserving of this scholarship. Founded in 1849, Eastern Michigan University is located in historic Ypsilanti, about 10 miles east of Ann Arbor. The scenic 800 plus-acre campus includes 18 miles of wooded walkways and jogging trails. It is home to 23,000 plus students. Congratulations to the Beaton family on this great accomplishment by their son Matt.
