Silverback Athlete was born out of Andrew Beattie’s innate talent, skill & love for the game of baseball.
Since Andrew can remember, he possessed gifts on the baseball diamond that commanded the attention from the time he can remember of baseball scouts, colleges & U.S. Olympic Teams.
Andrew holds 3 all-time records at Clearwater High School (1993-1998), including All-Time Hits (128), Runs Scored (131), Stolen Bases (87). He is second in Home Runs (8) & Triples (10) and is tied for sixth all-time in RBIs (58).
He was recruited by nearly every Division 1 NCAA college and Junior College and was drafted out of high school by the San Francisco Giants out of high school but opted to go to Pasco Hernando Junior College instead of going pro. After his first year at Pasco-Hernando, he was drafted again by the Toronto Blue Jays, but again opted to play another year in Junior College. He transferred to St Petersburg College for his second year where he eventually was drafted by the Cincinnati Reds in the 35th Round, which began his career as professional.
