Player Profile: Joe Beckwith

I have eleven cards of Joe Beckwith. This one is from 1985 Fleer.

Playing career: Joe Beckwith pitched for the Dodgers and Royals from 1979 to 1986. In 229 games he went 18-19 with 7 saves and a 3.54 ERA. A fuller account of his career can be found at the 1985 Topps blog.

My memories: He is from before my time. Only know him from his card.

Where he is now: After his retirement he has spent over 25 years in the ready mix concrete business.

Google Autocomplete results: He is eighth when you type Joe Bec, between Joe Becwar, an executive coach, and Joe Beck Mafia, referring to a narcotics trafficker. Another prominent Joe Beckwith is a movie production accountant.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Erik Bedard.
