3 being inducted into ND Sports Hall of Fame

JAMESTOWN, N.D. — The North Dakota Sports Hall of Fame will have three new members after this weekend.

Former major league baseball players Darin Erstad and Rick Helling and legendary high school basketball coach Ed Beyer are being inducted into the hall in Jamestown during a banquet Saturday.

Erstad played outfield and first base in the majors for 14 years, for the Los Angeles Angels and two other teams. During his career he was an all-star, a gold glove winner and a World Series champion.

Helling pitched 13 years for five teams. He won 20 games with the Texas Rangers in 1998, and won two World Series rings with the Florida Marlins.

Beyer coached the Hillsboro boys' basketball team for nearly four decades, retiring as the winningest boys' coach in North Dakota history.
