Texas Rangers pitcher Blake Beavan started playing baseball at the age of five in the Irving Boys Baseball Association. Tonight, the Irving native will show his appreciation with a donation of baseball gloves and Rangers caps to the IBBA.

Beavan, the Rangers first round selection in the 2007 First Year Player Draft, will take part in a presentation at 5:30 p.m. this evening, Wednesday, February 25, at Trinity View Park in Irving.

Beavan, who reports to minor league spring training camp this weekend in Surprise, Arizona, was 10-6 with a 2.37 ERA in 23 starts at Clinton (A) in his first professional season in 2008. The righthander was a consensus area player of the year in his senior season at Irving High School in 2007, going 9-2 with a 0.19 ERA and 139 strikeouts in just 73.0 innings.

Youngsters from the Irving Boys Baseball Association, which has conducted leagues for players from ages 5-14 for over 50 years, will participate in tonight's ceremony. Representatives of the Rangers and the IBBA will also be on hand.
