In the video, he looks a lot like Ty Wigginton. But he's got that ugly "Stanford swing."

August is having a solid season. He has made a smooth transition from left field to center, and is hitting .311 with five homers and 34 RBIs. He also leads the team with 68 hits, is tied for first with 13 doubles and has struck out 15 times in 219 at bats.

After participating in the College World Series in Omaha, Neb., last season — Stanford tied for third and August hit .400 —he'd like one more opportunity to play on college baseball's grand stage.

"It was unbelievable. It's Disneyland for college baseball players," said August, a 6-foot-1, 210-pounder who throws left and bats left. "Once you go, you realize it's even bigger than people talk about."

Article about Joey August

"He [the coach] compares August to former Stanford standout Mike Aldrete, who was not considered a top pro prospect but played 10 years in the major leagues as an outfielder/first baseman."

Another lefty btw

He sounds like a pinch-hitter, in fact he WAS a pinch-hitter when need be.

Can you say.... Gritty?


Joey August
Quote:
Senior Joey August was solid all year for the Cardinal, batting .304 and leading the team with 70 hits on the season. August may get picked up in the later rounds because of his all-around game — he only committed one error this season while manning the centerfield position for Stanford. Though Storen is not the authority on the issue, August’s teammate was fairly certain that the senior would be selected in the upcoming draft.

“A lot of teams love Joey,” Storen said. “When guys ask me who I would pick as a fielder, I would pick him because he’s just an all-around good ballplayer, and scouts know that. He’ll definitely get picked up.”

If we are going to make a second half run, we need a Mr. August.

Darin Erstad reincarnate. The Darin Erstad post-2003, though.
