Senior (2009): | Season Stats | Not only played excellent defense at first base but drove in 44 runs... one of just three four-year seniors on FAU's 2009 roster (William Block and Alex Pepe)... began the year hitting .423 in FAU's first seven games... went on to hit .400-plus through the first 14 games, helping FAU start the season 13-3... reeled off an FAU season-high 19-game hitting streak from March 1 through April 4... had 19 multi-hit games, including a team-leading seven games with three hits or more... doubled and scored two runs to help FAU beat No. 17 Florida (3/4)... went 3-for-5 with a season-high four RBI in an early-season SBC game vs. UALR (3/7)... went on to hit 10 doubles and four homers against Sun Belt Conference pitching... held an average of .331 as of May 5.. went 3-for-4 with a homer, double and two RBI against South Alabama (4/3)... had a season-high four hits and homered in a victory against Bethune-Cookman (4/15)... went 6-for-12 with three doubles in a late-season series at Western Kentucky (Apr. 24-26)... homered in four of his last six collegiate games and finished the season on a six-game hitting streak... matched a season-high by going 4-for-5, with a triple and four RBI in FAU's 16-6 victory over rival FIU (5/21) at the SBC Tournament in Troy, Alabama... hit a walk-off homerun in that game against FIU (5/21), ending the game (and FIU's season) in the eighth inning with the mercy rule... finished the season hitting .312 with eight homers and 68 hits, starting in 53 of FAU's 56 games hitting in the heart of FAU's batting order.

First Random Video of Ozga's Swing

SECOND Random Video of Ozga's Swing (with others)

"FAU coach John McCormack said Major League Baseball scouts have been intrigued by the possibility slotting Ozga’s bat at the catcher spot – traditionally not considered an offensive position.

That interest prompted Ozga to spend the last couple weeks refining his skills with catching lessons. Ozga only caught bullpen sessions during his senior season, but he was the Owls starting catcher as a sophomore.

“Being a switch-hitting catcher is said to be the quickest ticket to the big leagues,” said Ozga."

"Kansas City, San Francisco and the New York Mets have shown interest in Ozga over the last few months. A career .299 hitter, scouts have seen Ozga produce at the plate. How far Ozga goes will likely depend on his defensive skills."

If he lasts a year in the organization, he'd be beating the odds.

Ozga (6-2, 215), a three-year starter, hit .312 this year with eight home runs and 44 RBI. He started in 53 of FAU's 56 games. Ozga went to Pope John Paul II before enrolling at FAU.

It was the highest average of his career (.303 in 2008, .282 in 2007). Ozga, a switch hitter, can also play catcher.

They drafted him as a 1b.

I'm sure the Mets have made him an offer.

If he's waiting for them to call back with a better offer, he might be waiting a long time....
