Beatin came to fame in 1887 - at the age of 20 - when he was playing for Allentown of the Pennsylvania State Association. Pitching most of the team's games, he went 19–5 with a 1.37 earned run average.
Along the way, Beatin also signed contracts with three National League teams: Detroit, Cincinnati, and Indianapolis. The league decided in favor of the Detroit Wolverines, and Beatin started two games for them in 1887. He was purchased by the Cleveland Spiders in December 1888. In 1890, he was the number one starter for the team, pitching 474.1 innings and going 22–30. He was released the following season.
