05/25/2013 - Little League® Experience - S. Williamsport Austin is a young player who is very coachable and can play many positions. Behind the plate, he does well receiving pitches and keeping the ball in front of him. He has a short arm action with good carry on his throws. If he gets his arm up a little higher they will have more life. He can improve his blocking technique by replacing his feet with his knees. His sure hands and good fielding position translate well to the infield. On the mound, he has good presence and commands the zone with his fastball. He has good balance and separation, and can continue to improve the consistency of his landing and finish. At the plate, he has an athletic stance with good rhythm and lower half in his swing. He puts the barrel on the baseball, but power will improve with more top hand and extending through contact. Overall, Austin is a solid young player who will continue to find himself on the field and helping the team.
