BILL BEAUTER

Baseball - 1990

BILL BEAUTER (Fairport, NY) starred on the diamond at Painted Post High during 1946-49 ... A pro contract with the Boston Red Sox came to no avail as Korean War Navy service ended his hopes ... As a freshman shortstop in '46, Bill hit a two-run triple to give the Indians the Sectionals championship in a 12-inning 5-3 win ... In '48 he topped the Steuben "A" loop hitting at .538 while again leading Painted Post to the league crown ... Outstanding semi-pro career in later years.
