The founder and Executive Director of Baseball Process, Walter Beede, was drafted out of high school and played a stint for the Chicago Cubs organization. One of his sons, Tyler, then became an elite and sought-after prospect in high school. Drafted in the first round, the younger Beede opted instead to attend college, playing for a perennial national powerhouse, Vanderbilt. Three years later, with an All-American season and a National Championship, Beede was drafted again in the first round. This time, seven picks higher than he'd been selected out of high school. All told, Walter has more than 35 years of experience as a mentor to other young men, a coach, a father, and a player himself.
