03/22/2015 - National Tryout - Bowie, MD Austin continues to work hard on his game. With the bat, this RHH shows a square setup with good balance and patience as he tracks the ball into the zone. Swing path is level as he squares the ball up and drives the middle of the field. Relaxing/loosening his grip will allow for more bat whip and bat speed, resulting in harder contact. At 2B, he works quickly into a square fielding position. He presents his glove and fields the ball out in front. He gathers smoothly and has a clean exchange to throw. Playing through the ball more will help his defensive skills to continue to improve. Only a 2019 grad - Austin is a hard worker who still has a ton of time to develop.
