Penn State All-Sports Museum to host six different programs/events this spring
Blake Beemer enters his first year as volunteer assistant coach for the baseball team under head coach Rob Cooper. Beemer will serve as the outfield coach for the 2014 season.
A native of Dayton, Ohio, Beemer comes to Happy Valley after a distinguished career as a collegiate baseball player at Ball State. Beemer hit .286 for his career as a four-year starter with the Cardinals. Beemer scored 108 runs and drove in 94 in his career. The Dayton native thrived in the field as well, committing only two errors in his four seasons. Beemer finished with a .996 fielding percentage, including two perfect seasons during his sophomore and senior campaigns.
During his senior year, Beemer was one of 30 baseball players around the country nominated for the Senior CLASS Award. Beemer earned the recognition not only with his play on the field but the good work he did off it as well. Active in both the university and local communities, Beemer spent four years as a member of Ball State's Student Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC). His last two years with SAAC were spent on the organization's five-member executive board. In that role, Beemer was part of the communication between the university's athletics administration and the student-athletes.
Beemer completed his undergraduate studies from Ball State with a degree in business administration in December of 2012 with a 3.64 GPA. Beemer resides in State College.
