Austin, a key member of the frosh team last year, has improved dramatically from last year with his skills and his talents, and this added success should build additional confidence. Austin plays a rangy third base, and his arm can handle the throw across the infield. Austin has the athleticism to play other key infield spots, and those talents should add to his defensive and offensive game. Offensively, Austin has worked hard on his swing development, and his added strength provides him more power in his swing and thus a better hitter. Austin can steal bases once on base, and is truly an on-base provider for Hart.
