Jim Beauchamp

Longtime Braves coach Jim Beauchamp passed away from leukemia. Jim was a longtime coach during the Braves' heyday in the 90's. It took me a while to realize that coach "Beech-um" Pete Van Wieren kept referring to during broadcasts on TBS was that guy in my '67 Topps Braves set. Jim's one of the first names that comes to mind when I think of Braves coaches and I always expected him to pop back up on the bench next to Bobby sooner or later. I'm sorry to hear of this, especially since it happened on Christmas.
