Spanish Fork is well known for it’s history in baseball and softball. And recently, one of our very own was recognized for his contribution to the game of softball. George “Goose” Beardall was inducted into the Utah Softball Hall of Fame at a ceremony held at the Larry H Miller Softball Complex on July 7, 2017.

The event, presented by the Salt Lake County Parks & Recreation, recognized seven  men for their contributions as players, coaches, umpires and sponsors. George (or Goose) was recognized for his play in men’s fast pitch softball from 1969 thru 1987 and slow pitch for a number of years. He played on teams from all over Utah County and was known as a top hitter and a great arm. Goose’s love for the game was evident as he was playing nearly every night of the week. One of his past teammates, Lane Henderson, remembers that when Goose would get a good hit, you could hear him say “touch ‘em all or get out of this phone booth!”

Goose’s love the game started early in his life as he played in every level or division that he could. He was named to the All-state team as a senior at Spanish Fork High. Goose coached in Pony league baseball for 43 years. His dedication to the game included his devotion to help his players became better people in life. Congratulations to Goose for this significant recognition.
