In 2004, after Paul Molitor was elected to the Baseball Hall-of-Fame, and as the Brewers were limping along to win about 67 games a season, a friend wrote to me, "The Brewers will never have more than two players in the Baseball Hall-of-Fame. Ever! That sucks!"

While baseball fans watch their team play, many focus on the score. One thing that is not often considered is the equipment used in the game. Brothers, catchers, and Racine-area natives Lee and Jason Jaramillo have experienced the pain that catchers have game after game of the impact a hard ball is pitched.

Just before the Brewers begin their 2013 season Monday at Miller Park, James Beckum will take the mound. The team has selected him to toss the ceremonial first pitch.

Beckum played in the former Negro Leagues, but he’s known in Milwaukee as the man who started Little League on the north side back in 1964 and - devoted himself to it ever since.

WUWM’s Erin Toner visited Beckum on his ball field in 2008 – here is the report she prepared.
