Bulldogs fall, Beckham sees the Bigs

The upside is that Gordon Beckham is now free to pursue his career in Major League Baseball.

The downside is that the shortstop for the Bulldogs (the UGA in Athens kind) fell short of his goal of winning the College World Series. The Bulldogs (of the Fresno State variety) pounded Beckham and his Bulldogs on Wednesday for the second consecutive night to take the title.

But fortunately for us, we’ll soon be seeing more of Beckham, who was drafted by the Chicago White Sox. With his college career now complete, he can sign on the dotted line and begin his pursuit of a spot in the Bigs.

We still think he looks like Alex Binder’s long-lost brother.
