Personal

Played at Grand Canyon University(D1) from 2016-2019 starting in 192 of 202 games played. I left GCU as the career hits (217) and walks (109) leader. You can count on a sparkplug at the top of the line up who will get a lot of hits, get on base, take extra bases, and score runs. Will bunt for hits. Will steal bases. Switch hitter. 

Started off college hot, with a solid freshman year and my sophomore campaign being my most successful statistically. My junior and senior year I did hit in spurts, but in general got away from my identity as a hitter which cost me in terms of the draft. I was reminded the hard way that I’m not a consistent power guy, and that looking to pull is not what made me competitive. I’m looking for an opportunity to play where I can recommit to using the middle/opposite part of the field and produce again with my usual consistency.

Defense is one of my known strengths as I commanded the 2B position at GCU for four years. In 3 of the 4 summer collegiate leagues I played in, I played SS becoming an All-star in the California Collegiate League, Alaska Baseball League, and Southern California Collegiate Baseball League. Have experience playing 3B and can play outfield as well.

I am a winner and promote winning culture being a part of 2 regular season Conference Championships at GCU. In 2019 we reached the WAC tournament championship game for the first time only to fall one game short of the NCAA D1 Regionals. I‘ve been a part of two summer league championship teams (Alaska, SCCBL) and a playoff team in the Northwood’s.

More of a quiet leader who leads by example and action. I’m ready to contribute to win a championship, see another part of the world, and meet new people.

 

Overseas goals:

  • Use overseas as a stepping stone into professional ball in the U.S.
  • Experience new cultures and meet new people
  • Possibly get more experience coaching

Austin Bull is a wonderful young man. There would be no better representative of your program on or off the field than Austin Bull. Austin is a very skilled ballplayer. He played 2b for us and make all the plays. Switch hitter that uses the whole field with a line drive approach. I can’t give him a high enough recommendation. Hope this helps and you can get him into your program.

Vaughn Williams

Boston Red Sox, Area Scout

Without hesitation, I take great pride and pleasure in recommending Austin Bull to be strongly considered to become part of your organization.

As a profession baseball scout in Phoenix, Arizona, one of the schools in my area of responsibility is Grand Canyon University were Austin was a student-athlete. I’ve had the pleasure of watching him both on and off the field and I feel very comfortable vouching for his baseball abilities, IQ and character. Austin has always conducted himself in a highly dependable, conscientious, and credible manner. Whether it’s as a player or an aspiring coach, I strongly believe his skill set is extremely relevant for success and fully believe he will continue to exhibit the “special trust and confidence” we expect from our players and individuals within the coaching profession.

Austin Bull was always a student of the game and will be a quality mentor through and through. Total dedication and sincerity is what you will get and he will do nothing short of preparing himself and his young players for success on and off the field. He is an intelligent young man who is articulate and presents himself confidently and competently. If the goal of your program is to find and select the best candidates to help develop your program, then you will be well served by selecting Austin Bull.
