NCAA DI Middle Infielder/Utility with Experience in Alaska and Northwoods League
Name: Austin Bull
DOB: November 30, 1996
Date Available: October 6, 2020Will Pay Flight
Positions: Coach, Youth Coach, 2B, SS
Positions (alt): 3B, OF, RF, CF, LF
College: Grand Canyon University
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.
- 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
