While he wasn't one of the core organizers of the League, Rudy was one of the stalwart 'doers'. Whether it was participating in a fundraiser, setting up a concession stand or just a team picnic, he consistently brought more energy and follow- through to the things in which he participated than anyone. And although he did have a temper at times, you were most likely to see a huge smile and hear an unrestrained laugh from Rudy.

Rudy was a true all around athlete, with a college basketball scholarship in his past. Rudy was also somewhat of an 'ageless wonder'. Quite a few people were surprised when he finally let them know that he was in his late 30s. He performed at a level exceeding most guys who were a decade younger. He was a tough, but fair, competitor on and off the field. A consistent hitter, fielder, and great clutch hitter, Rudy helped the Boston Ramrod team establish itself as one of the top teams of the 1980s.

Rudy was not only an excellent player, he was a gentleman who cared deeply about his teammates and about everyone in the League. Even though Rudy played only 7 seasons before his death on December 8th 1988, he has made a major impact on a number of current and former players. His legacy is still with us today and the "Rudy Becerra Sportsmanship Award" will ensure that his legacy is always present in the BSL.
