WATCH AUSTIN’S 2016 11th PSC HIGHLIGHT VIDEO

 In my 20 years of coaching High School and Travel baseball I am not sure I have ever coached a kid with as much knowledge about the game or with more natural baseball ability than Austin Bode. As a catcher Austin is years above his age often drawing comparisons from opposing coaches and umpires to players that are 4 and 5 years older. Austin’s receiving and blocking skills have completely transformed our pitching staff, he has given our pitchers the confidence to throw any pitch in any count. As a hitter Austin is one of the purest hitters I have ever coached or watched in this or any other age group. It only takes a few swings for other coaches, players and fans to know they are watching a very special hitter. With an exceptional knowledge of the strike zone and his ability to hit with power to all parts of the field have made Austin one of the most dangerous hitters nationally in this age group. Most kids with his type of skills tend to carry themselves in a different way, not Austin Bode he is a very humble and good natured kid that has yet to realize how special he is both on and off the field.  By selecting Austin Bode to participate in your event, you have selected a young man that if he stays the course will have the opportunity to some day play this game at a very high level.

Austin has partnered with Brendan Barnett for Home Runs that Help

 I have partnered with my cousin, Brendan Barnett, to raise funds for his classroom. Brendan is a ten year old boy with Down Syndrome. Brendan is very special to me. His smile and big heart can light up the world.   He attends Schmitt Elementary School in Columbus, IN.  Brendan participates in the Life Skills program at his school.  His classroom is in need of special chairs that allow students with special needs to function easier in the classroom.
