Baylor Infielder Signs with Huskies

Wimpee signing adds a ‘Bear’ to strong infield for Duluth

 

Duluth, Minn.- The Huskies have another infielder in the fold, as Baylor Bears SS/2B/3B Beau Wimpee signs to play in Duluth for the 2021 season. The 2019 Rockwall, Texas grad heads north with a best PG grade of 9-indicating an elite-level college prospect, courtesy of perfectgame.org. Additionally, Wimpee boasted a top-10 position ranking for short stop (7) as well as a top-50 overall player ranking in the state of Texas (36). According to his Baylor Bears profile, Beau was the District MVP as well as the District Defensive MVP while playing for Rockwall High School.

Due to NCAA transfer rules, Wimpee sat out his freshman season for Baylor after transferring from TCU. This worked out well for the Rockwall native, as Covid-19 truncated the 2020 college baseball season and allowed him further time to rehab from double shoulder surgeries conducted in 2019 without missing too many games for the Bears. Summer ball in the Dallas area allowed Beau to stay fresh while playing on the same team as his older brother.

Wimpee comes to Duluth on recommendation from the Baylor coaches, calling it a good place for Beau to be. He is looking forward to getting back on the field and competing, and says the Wade looks like a fun great to play. When not on the ball field, Beau enjoys hunting, fishing, and especially golfing; He aspires to become a professional golfer after his baseball career comes to a close.

Please join us in welcoming Beau to the Huskies!
