I have had the pleasure of my son being involved with Baseball Process for the past three years – my only regret is that it wasn’t longer. Walter Beede is by far the best person that anyone’s son can have in his/her son’s baseball career. My son tried out for the team with very little confidence but definitely had the ability. Within a year, confidence was up and ability was shining through. Baseball Process is different from other baseball organizations in that it isn’t just about the sport but about the TOTAL person. It is refreshingly honest in approach – Coach Walter will be candid in expectations and outcome. The opportunity to play on a team led by Baseball Process is the experience of a lifetime. The respect that Coach Walter has in the industry … with college coaches, tournament organizers, and players is such an asset. It is so much more than going to games and stats! Caleb stayed with families in the Northeast when he was playing in tournaments there and when they headed south we had boys staying with us. It was a cultural experience, growing and understanding – that summer he left looking at it as baseball only, but with the leadership of Baseball Process realized the importance of grades, ACT scores and making the most of life.
Coach Walter takes a vested interest in his team. He has helped with some difficult life decisions. When Caleb injured his arm, it was Coach Walter that assisted in knowing which treatments to consider. He has been there from playing to talking with D1 universities to working with the injury. Baseball Process is my fondest memory of the whole baseball experience. If your child could use guidance in taking the skills to the next level – you are fortunate to have discovered Walter Beede and Baseball Process. Don’t hesitate, prepare yourself for the possibilities and take a lot of photos. 

Sincerely,

Baseball Process is much more than an organization that helps young kids realize their goals of playing at the next level. It is an organization that prepares you for life to come. I know that for me, I wouldn’t be at such a prestigious university as Northeastern without Baseball Process. I remember being a young 17-year-old kid taking that leap of faith with Walter Beede when he suggested going to the middle of nowhere Connecticut and repeat another year of high school. At the time, all I wanted to do was continue playing and I just said yes let’s do it. But when I said yes, I didn’t realize that decision would shape the future for me. In Salisbury, Connecticut I met friends from all across the world and played with the cream of the crop in high school baseball. After getting a level of exposure in Connecticut I could not get at Jesuit High School, I was offered a scholarship at Northeastern University. I have met some of my best friends, got an opportunity to play in the Cape Cod baseball league for two summers, and am on track to get a degree from a top 40 academic school in the United States. None of this would have been possible without the help of Baseball Process.

Thank you to Walter "Buzz" "Big Walt" "Coach" Beede. Walter worked with my son Conner Poche' (shortstop & RHP) while he was living in New Orleans area. Walter took time to coach, develop & improve all aspects of baseball, especially pitching with Conner. Walter stressed the importance of academics, working hard and being a teammate. Conner also played one fall season with Walter on the Southeast Evoshield Canes. Conner is a 2017 graduate of Riverside Academy & now continuing his education at Centenary College of Louisiana and also playing the game he loves at the college level. The brotherhood of baseball, players and coaches shapes young men and builds relationships & memories that last a lifetime. We are proud to call Walter coach and friend.

Mr. Beede 

You might not remember this but in Feb of 2017 you were running the first round of tryouts for the USA NTIS at your facility 

In Middleton. My son Evan was trying out for the 12u team. Evan is a shy quiet kid and usually let's that get in the way of his ability. Your words of encouragement on that day seemed to change his approach to the game. To this day  he still remembers what you said to him at the end of tryouts as you were going through the line of kids you came to him and simply said you're gonna be great. Only time will tell if that will ever happen but it was the first time someone of your stature said anything like that to him and seemed to believe in his a ability. You also told him to make sure he's a little fish in a big pond. That's something he's been doing since then and he's been improving his game each time he steps on a field. His work ethic and determination are incredible and he loves the game now more than ever. I know  you two only met briefly but I just want  you to know those few words lit a spark in him that seems to keep growing day after day. 

 

Thank you

Walter Beede and Baseball Process in one word has been, “Amazing”!  We have been working with Walter for the last couple of years and he has been able to answer all of our questions, relating to all baseball matters and the process. Walter has come in to our home to advise us, he has coached our son, Erik, and provides personal instruction that is second to none.  He gives a very honest evaluation, and will put your son in the best possible position to succeed addressing HS ball, Summer Travel Ball, Baseball Development, Nutrition, etc.  The relationships Walter has cultivated over the years are countless.

Thanks in large part to Walter, we are proud to say our son, Erik is a legitimate Division 1 Baseball Prospect!  We as a family are more than thrilled with everything Walter Beede and Baseball Process has provided us.  There is a safety and security as parents knowing we can go to Walter and he has our son’s best interest at heart!

Baseball Process is much more than an organization that helps young kids realize their goals of playing at the next level. It is an organization that prepares you for life to come. I know that for me, I wouldn’t be at such a prestigious university as Northeastern without Baseball Process. I remember being a young 17-year-old kid taking that leap of faith with Walter Beede when he suggested going to the middle of nowhere Connecticut and repeat another year of high school. At the time, all I wanted to do was continue playing and I just said yes let’s do it.

With regard to baseball, as our sons transition to a more competitive environment, more than likely they will require coaching to help them in the transition into and throughout high school to position them for an opportunity in college. Daddy has to step away! You also need someone that can determine if your son wants to do the work, and has the ability and experience to project the potential by his body , skills and mental maturity.  I have seen that he does tell people the truth about the potential and many times you may not like what you hear and take money.

 

I have always been skeptical of who would fingerprint my son Daniel and during that 13-16 year old period. Daniel and I made the right choice with Walter. Why, he was firstly a mentor that taught values about behavior, preparation, teamwork beside  baseball skills and baseball tactical skills.

 

I have seen Walter  place student athletes from our area in Louisiana and throughout the Southeast. Walter works with families to ensure they find the right place for the student athlete based on their current and projectable skills, academic background and desired geographical preference. He is able to objectively  judge their level of skills out of the “Little Pond” versus regional and national events and allow them to know  where they stand currently and what areas need to be addressed and developed. He spends personal one on one time, motivating them to continue to improve their skills to be marketable to the college level Walter advises they could attain.

Walter,

I am sitting at my desk the day after one of the happiest days in my son Jared’s life trying to digest all that happened in the last several months.

As you know,  it has always been Jared’s dream to play Division 1 Baseball in college followed by the ultimate dream of a spot in the MLB but after a serious injury to his spine during the winter of his junior year in high school that dream seemed almost impossible. He missed his junior year season and spent most of his senior year rehabbing from the injury. Jared was so behind in the recruiting process that I frantically signed Jared up for every showcase possible to get him exposure, the results were many dollars expended with little to no results. The first email I sent to you was on September 22nd 2015 and your reply was, “Are you interested in chatting tomorrow? I can place your son at D1” I thought to myself, another empty promise from a person trying to get more money from us but after a lengthy phone conversation I changed my mind. You talked to me about your experience and took the time to answer all my questions. Our first face to face meeting was at a local field because you wanted to look into my son’s eyes to see if he had what it took.  I wasn’t really sure what you meant but after I saw the interaction you had with my son Jared that night I quickly came to understand if you were going to give your time you wanted to be sure that the end result would be successful. What I didn’t understand at the time was how in a short 8 months you would be able to take Jared’s raw talent and begin to shape him into a better finished product.

 I will never forget during our first conversation when I told you how frustrating the process had been, with all of the false promises of coaches claiming to be able to take my son to the next level but never really being able to deliver, my wife and I were running up and down the east coast chasing events claiming to give “exposure to college coaches”, or the costly elite summer teams.  It was emotionally and financially draining with little to no results. You said to me, “Stop chasing! Formulate a plan and execute that plan.”  I thought to myself what is he talking about I have a plan, join the best summer team, hire pitching coaches at $100.00 per hour, and run like crazy to every event everywhere to showcase your son right?  I was so wrong and didn’t realize it until you showed us the plan.  I remember thinking to myself, what if it doesn’t work?

 Well here we are 8 months later and my son Jared just signed his letter of intent to play baseball in the SEC at the University of Kentucky.  If I had only met you two years ago I could have saved myself thousands and thousands of dollars and many sleepless nights. In 8 short months you have created “real” interest from high level college coaches because Jared is now a focused competitor. The plan you helped Jared execute was not easy but the results are exactly what he wanted.  The plan confirms that with hard work, dedication, and the right team in your corner anything is possible.  Jared understands that his journey is just beginning and he has some extremely hard work ahead of him but the difference is that after training with you he is prepared mentally and physically to meet those challenges.

For that peace of mind my wife and I are eternally grateful.  To witness the expression on Jared’s face the night he got the call from Kentucky saying, “we want you” was incredibly fulfilling as parents. Walter, you are the first baseball coach in Jared’s journey to follow through on a commitment. As I have said to you during our many conversations, “this process is grueling!”  Having you in our corner has been invaluable. 

 

THANK YOU!!
