Ontario to dedicate baseball field to longtime coach Beck

Ontario High School is holding a ceremony on Wednesday at 2:45 p.m. to name its baseball field after longtime baseball coach Bob Beck. Beck, who retired from his Ontatio coaching job four years ago, led the Jaguars to an undefeated season and the 1991 CIF-SS 3-A championship with a roster that included current 15-year major league baseball veteran Mike Sweeney Jr.

Beck, a Chaffey Joint Union School district employee for 40 years, will have the field’s scoreboard and a plaque dedicated to him during the ceremony prior to Ontario’s game with Montclair.
