Bucs Happy to Have Beller Back

Posted: Updated:

After playing baseball this year at Lewis and Clark State Kadin Beller was a little burnt out. He thought he wouldn't have the desire to play Legion ball for the Bitterroot Bucs, until he got back home.

"I don't know I just came back and then a month into it I just missed it too much and couldn't go a summer without baseball so I called up Coach and asked if I could come back," said Beller.

"Around tryout time I got the call from him saying he was 100% committed and he's too good of a kid not to give that opportunity to, he's to important to this program to turn a kid away like that," said Bitterroot Bucs Head Coach Brendan Brown.

The Bucs have had a lot of young talent that's been developing on their roster over the last few years. They say adding a player like Beller to that mix is a game changer.

"It was big it made us go from maybe a district championship to a state championship, I mean he's definitely one of the best catchers in the state," said Senior Second Baseman Logan Lueck.

Last year he really showed the state that he is one of the elite players in the state and for him to be back in the program it's huge. It takes us from a good team to maybe one of the better teams to beat in the state now," said Brown.

 Beller says his year at college made him mature as a player which has helped him in all areas on the diamond.

"I think the game a lot better now and going to LC really helped me improve a lot on my receiving, blocking, footwork and I think I have just worked hard and all my skills have been emphasized," said Beller.

Beller is hitting .350 on the year and leading the Bucs in extra base hits, but his Coach says it's this intangibles that has helped guide the Bucs to a 40-18 record.

"Working with younger kids and showing the first year kids in the program and showing them what it takes to be a Bucs player. He takes care of his business on the field pretty well but it's what he does off the field and at practice that is most beneficial to us," said Brown.
