2014 Austin Douglas Update

Class of 2014 Austin Douglas, who plays his high school ball for Simpson Academy (MS), is playing his first summer with the PSA Sox Blue travel team this year.

Douglas talked about his strength as a baseball player.

"I'm probably at my best when I'm pitching," said the 6-1, 165-pounder.

A dual-position player who also plays third base, he has several things he needs to work on.

"I need to work a little bit on my hitting so I can cut down the strikeouts and I also need to work on my fielding," said Douglas.

Just now going into his 10th grade year, recruiting really hasn't started for him but he does have a favorite conference and a favorite school in that conference.

"I'm just looking to play ball somewhere but the SEC would be my favorite," said Austin Douglas. "Ole Miss is my favorite school."
