All-American Signs With Dawgs for 2017!
“ We are very excited to have Austin for the summer 2017 “, said DiamondDawgs owner and president Travis Heiser. ” Anytime you have the chance to sign an All-American player, you do! Austin is the total package who is a middle of the order lineup guy who handles the bat very well. He not only is a great hitter, but he is also a plus defender with an above average arm who can make tough plays look routine. We are excited to see Austin continue to develop this summer as the sky is the limit for him”.
” I am excited for the opportunity to play for the DiamondDawgs this summer, said Pollack. “ I am really looking forward to playing with high caliber players from all over the country who are all trying to take their game to the next level just as I am”.
Please join us in welcoming Austin to the DiamondDawgs Family!
